The CB emphatically requires that test takers not share any info about the test after taking it. No discussion of questions, answers, etc., at all. Yet, it happens all of the time.
Though every tutor or adult test taker is not a cheater, many are.
I would love to see the SAT tutoring industry go away altogether, if you are asking. It gives an edge to students who can afford it.
(If you look on CB, you will see that the registration did not close "weeks ago").
There are many other references in this thread regarding examples of cheating that you have repeatedly ignored.
Just because you won't acknowledge doesn't mean that no one has explained it.
For anyone without a stake in this, the security risk of thousands of (out of country?) adult non-student test registrants is pretty obvious. You seem to be choosing not to see it.
Plenty. Including, for the last time, the reference test prep companies sending their employees to to take the test, (many from out of the country) to memorize answers. They are not sending high schoolers (some to the us from Asia) to memorize the test materials. They are sending adults. Who are not students. To cheat. Which seems to be a part of the reason why the CB has cancelled registrations of adult non students.
And as far as your link to the test resstration, it prove that the late registrations close ten days prior to the test. Read it, you will see what I mean. Registrations closed for the March 5 test on feb 23, which was Approx. 6 days prior to the email that you posted.
Good luck to you. But I am not sure how effective of a tutor you are given your inability to see the obvious and understand anything but what you want to see or hear, as evidenced by all of your posts.
— Test prep companies have employees or partners in the United States obtain recently administered SAT exams, including those that are officially “undisclosed,” either by copying illegally obtained test forms or compiling content from information about individual items shared on chat boards such as collegeconfidential.com. Some even take the tests themselves.
— Test prep firms overseas maintain complete databases of questions and correct answers from previously administered tests. They use these to train their regular clients (also illegal if they use questions that have not been disclosed). Such test-prep “services” are heavily advertised on Chinese language websites such as Taobao, QQ and Wechat.
— On SAT day, the firms have people sit for the test at Asian sites in time zones several hours ahead of China (e.g. Auckland, New Zealand is five hours ahead of Beijing), memorize the first few items, then take a “bathroom break,” from which they call or text that information to their superiors. The firms consult their database and identify the test being administered in China later that day.
— A list of correct answers is then transmitted to paying clients by simple technologies, such as emailing the file to their cell phones or loading it on programmable calculators that students are allowed to use in the test center.

they intend for the test to be taken for educational, not commercial purposes.
