As If They Were Not Stressful Enough
The College Board, which handles the SAT tests, admitted a week ago that there were some errors in scoring some test-takers' exams. Today they have admitted more errors in exam scores. Some folks had some scores increased by accident. They were not corrected and the scores were left as is. However, some people got scores lower than what they actually were. Although the scores were corrected, it has long past the deadlines for application to most universities across the USA. Did any hopefuls not apply to certain schools because they felt their tests scores were not high enough? Did any universities reject applications based on an incorrect test score? Who knows.
For many college hopefuls, this is one of the largest and most important factors in gaining admission to the schools of their choice. As such, taking one of these 3 hour tests is stressful enough without having to worry about your test scores comig back incorrect. I can recall how anxious I was about my test scores. With all the stuff that went wrong when I was applying to college, I think this would have driven me insane.
