American students were accidentally given more time on a section of the SAT exam, calling some results into question

American students were accidentally given more time on a section of the SAT exam, calling some results into question as a result of the extra five minutes. Bakes & Lord Printers have commented on the report detailed on the Time website.

The SAT student test books incorrectly stated that students had 25 minutes to complete this assessment, whereas the script contained the time limit of 20 minutes. Some test takers say they still had the correct allotted 20 minutes whereas others admitted they had an extra five minutes than they were meant to.

“We regret the confusion and concern this issue is causing for students and their families,” said the College Board.

The error was pointed out by the Education Testing Service. With much confusion and uncertainty arising after this mistake it is felt that a quick decision would be the best course of action. This has been evident online where one user is against any plans regarding a resit for all students.

“I understand how test takers could get confused, but CB [College Board] forcing a retake for their mistake would make many unhappy,” said one poster on CollegeConfidential.com.

A spokesperson for Bradford-based printers Bakes & Lord released a statement regarding the printing mistake. They said: “It is always important to get every single detail correct when printing exam papers as any small mishap can cause time delays for students. This can have a negative impact on their concentration and answers.
