What should I do?

I took the SAT for the first time and received a 1410 (650 reading, 760 math) with a 680 writing (65, 10)...I took it again in June and did absolutely horrifically in reading (570) my math stayed the same, and my writing went up to a 710...(66, 11)...I'm extremely confused...I wanted to do ED to Cornell, but I want to retake the SAT Subject Tests (670 Bio M, 720 Math 1, 690 Math 2---I'm in trig now...) I have a 31 ACT, with a breakdown of 26 english, 34 math, 31 reading, 32 science....What should I do come September/October?
I also have another dilemma...I am a full IB diploma candidate...but the only math class my school offers is Math Studies...and it is really holding me back...
My current classes for next year:
IB English HL
IB 20th Century HL
IB Math Studies SL
IB Economics SL
IB Italian SL
IB Physics SL (Hopefully)
and I took the IB Psychology SL test this year (predicted 6)
Christian Service

If I drop IB I could do this:
AP English Literature
AP Calculus AB
AP Chem
IB Physics SL
IB 20th Century HL
IB Economics SL
Maybe IB Math studies SL--easy to get a high grade for me
Whatever religion class my school makes me take..

I'm finding IB to be kind of a joke...(except for biology)

my grades for the year are (weighted, which is on my transcript...they're all weighted 1.06)
English 97
Psychology- 101

I would LOVE to go Cornell CALS-AEM... but I have another dilemma..

I kind of wanted to do a double major of math and econ with a physics minor...but if I do Cornell's business program, I won't be able to...any advice?
