Students get pass on SAT makeup: School finds missing exams

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — More than 200 Virginia students probably won’t have to retake their SAT exams after all: Officials who blamed UPS for losing the box of tests say it’s been found at the school.

The college entrance exams went missing last month at Broad Run High School in Ashburn. The 260 students had taken the test May 2. Many were upset to learn they might have to retake it.

But Loudoun County schools spokesman Wayde Byard says the box was found Monday morning in a shipping area at the school. Byard says the box was still sealed and was handed over immediately to a member of Educational Testing Service, which administers the exam. Byard says he expects the results to be validated.

Byard apologized to UPS and the students for the mistake.
