Why I love Tests

Anyone who ever took the SAT tests and thought their scores didn't exactly put them into the genius category can breathe a big sigh of relief. You may be a genius after all!

Approximately 4000 students who took the SAT last October, it seems, received test scores as much as 100 points lower than they should have been, attributed by the College Board to "technical problems in the scoring process."

Nice how they waited to disclose this "problem" until "the height of the college admissions season, at a time when many colleges have already made many of their decisions about which students to accept, reject or defer.

"We ask that you do everything you can to ensure that students are in no way penalized for a matter that was beyond their control," Jim Montoya, a vice president of the College Board, wrote in a letter to deans and admissions directors dated March 6."

Good luck.... Is there a class action lawsuit in the offing?
