Several colleges and universities are making changes to perspective students’ admission applications because of a scoring error on the Scholastic Aptitude Test.
When the SAT was given nationally in October of 2005, 4,000 students did not receive credit for questions they answered correctly.
All parties involved including students, high schools and colleges have been notified of the matter. If you were among those affected, you should have received notification in the mail or by email.
The University of Virginia says they do have some applications that need to be revised, but the matter is being taken care of.
SAT officials released information stating that this was a one-time problem, and only involved the October 2005 SAT reasoning test.
Students will receive a refund of test registrations fees as well as any other fees associated with sending scores from the October test administration.
Students who have been notified can access their revised scores at www.collegeboard.com/satscores.
