So, I took the SAT for the first time last November (my junior year) and I got a 2200. 700 on reading, 740 on math, and 760 on writing. I studied minimally, mostly just went through the entire blue SAT prep book the day before the test.
I knew that my reading score could definitely be improved, so I decided to retake in October this year. I got my scores today and I scored an 800 on reading! Unfortunately, I didn't really study at ALL though, and my math score dropped to a 650... (math isn't my best subject) My writing score also dropped to a 720.
I know the test is superscored by colleges, so I technically have a 2300 now, but do you think this will look bad to colleges nonetheless? ...that my score went down after a year rather than increased? I'm kind of worried :/ please respond! thanks.
