LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. (MEDIA GENERAL/WPRI) – Bad news for nearly 100 students in Loudoun County, Virginia.

Officials from The College Board, the company that administers the college aptitude test, confirmed Wednesday that students who took the test May 2 at Broad Run High School in Ashburn, Virginia, will have to retake the exam after their tests were lost.

Needless to say, those students are not happy.

“It’s been over a month since I’ve done all my studying,” Caroline Quinilty told NBC Washington. “It’s going to affect my scores.”

The College Board released a statement, saying they understand the frustration from students.

“We share the frustration of affected students and their families,” the statement said. “Every effort is being made to locate the shipment. In the meantime, we are working to provide options to accommodate these students, including a makeup test day or transfer to a future test.”

Make-up tests are scheduled for June 20 – the Saturday after the high school’s final exams.
