Cheating at SSAT testing center in Vietnam

edited April 2011 in International Students
I'm very discontented about what i witnessed on my latest SSAT test in Vietnam, which is hosted by SSAT representative,director of AEG-Vietnam, Richard Sherwood. While i'm concentrating to my test, supervisor helped other students to do their tests and caused noise, what made me distracted.
It seem to be unfair for student like me because i had spent a year to prepare for this test and then encountered a very bad situation like this. :((.
What should i do ? Should i act as deaf and dumb ? :(.
Who should i report about this ?

    I think you should report any problems you have directly to Collegeboard.
    Navigate the site and im sure you'll find an appropriate link.

    Do you think i should do that ?

    Ah, well they might cancel everyone's scores from that test then right? so be careful... it's up to you really.

    I've given the SAT twice, and both the times, I looked at the essay topics beforetime. So? Whats the big deal?
  • gouchicagogouchicago Posts: 472Registered User Member
    As for you, OP, only those who aren't getting a decent score would inform CB. From your grammar, it seems like the SAT must've given you a tough time, eh?
    While i'm concentrating to my test, supervisor helped other students to do their tests and caused noise, what made me distracted.

    Wow dude. With your english skills, you'd have been ****ed even without any noise. It's so obvious that you just want a low score cancelled.

    To be honest, on my SAT, i couldn't solve one problem on time. I was thinking in my head and checked on the grid in the CR section. I think it is possible to do that keke. I found that it is not hard to see the problems again and check it. But i didn't
  • boyvnboyvn Posts: 3Registered User New Member
    Yes, you guys r right, i shouldn't report this s**k phenomenon.
    @gouchicago: Tx for your cmt. I'm an International student so mistyping or grammatical error is just smt acceptable. But you'd better watch your mouth, s**k guy !!!.

    He is from Vietnam. So you might very well keep your english skills to yourself.

    As wrong as it might be, I wouldn't be a rat.
  • lOngbOWmeNlOngbOWmeN Posts: 276- Junior Member
    that is absolutely unacceptable....my suggestion to you Boyvn is, rat on them, get everyone's score cancelled and go back home and study for 2 more years before you take your SAT

    FYI ALL of us are international students....and our grammar dont seem that atrocious does it?

    It depends on your schooling. Its all relative. But you can just start commenting on someone without knowing his background.

    see its simple-

    If your ssat went great- better then you actually do in ur practice tests and expect a great score. then don't say nething.

    If it didn't really go that well- just report it- you'll get to give it again for free probably.
  • Gentoo CowGentoo Cow Posts: 277- Junior Member
    Actually, its none of your buisness. There must be other students who prepared harder and you are going to get their scores cancelled because a instructor helped someone?

    what do you mean by its "none of your business"? of course it is!

    it doesnt matter if someone else had prepared harder watsoever....are you going to give up your place in that dream college simply becoz SOME OTHER dude tried harder? besides, i'm sure THE OTHER students who prepared very hard would feel indignant if someone cheated their way thru to a higher score

    its unfair for you to be penalised due to the thieving behaviour of some unethical supervisors or students.....plus you probably wont do very well with your english (no offence Bovyn) so go ahead and get the scores cancelled =) its fair game matey

    btw whats SSAT? lol
