College Board Waives Fee for Retake of the SAT
The College Board has offered to waive the fee for nearly half a million students affected by a printing error in the SAT administered June 6 if they want to retake the exam in October.
Following last month’s administration, the College Board reported it would not score two sections of the SAT after it was discovered that the test booklet indicated a time limit of 25 minutes for some math and reading sections, while the manual and script gave the correct time of 20 minutes.
The New York Daily News reports that a Long Island student is suing the College Board and the Educational Testing Service for unspecified monetary damages. In addition, two New York high school students have started a petition to allow for a retest.
