I’ve been studying for the SAT for a couple of months now, and I just took my second practice test. For some reason my score dropped 60 points from my first practice test (1260 to 1200)!

Is this normal, or am I doing something wrong in my studying? I’m now worried about how this will affect my actual SAT score later this year.

When did you take both of these practice tests (morning, noon, night?)

I have had relative score drops when I have been tired etc.

And obviously no its not normal to drop score and yes you could be doing something wrong with your studying depending on how much time you spent studying between two papers. If you studied total of 50 hours etc then there is something seriously wrong with your studying but if you only spent 2-3 studying it could just be an anonamly.
