A really close friend of mine was finished with his reading section just one minute early, and looked at the next page of his science test. He scribbled on the first three questions but did not answer anything on the answer sheet. The proctor came and snatched his test and yelled at him, then she ran out and gave the test to the supervisor. He ran out of the room too, in shock. As soon as he ran out, everyone else began the Science section. While he was out, the supervisor told him that he could continue the test but that they would have to fill out an "irregularity report". After 10 minutes, they sent him back to the class to complete the Science portion. He looked panicky and fidgety. He had a lot less time than everyone else did, and he seemed to look more like he was having a panick attack than actually concentrating on the questions. He told me later that he may have bombed the science portion. After he calmed his nerves and wrote the essay (he said he wrote an amazing essay), they asked him to stay longer and they wrote an irregularity report explaining the situation, and how he had lost time in the outside discussion and that they still allowed him to finish the test. I stayed with him at the end and the supervisor said that the ACT would most likely let this slide, but they could also void the test too. What do you think will happen? Do you think voiding the test is fair? I think it was penalty enough for him having not only less time on the science, but also having to finish the test with an accelerated pulse rate and trauma. He has taken the ACT previously. The supervisor said whatever happens on this test will not effect any of his future ACT scores or his past ACT scores.
Do you think ACT will void his test?
