if you took the SAT in June, please read

<p>you know when you took the sat, in the booklet, there were two numbers on the back, those two were for boxes 9 and 10 right? and the booklet also had a number in the front, did you have to put that number on the answer sheet? i just remember the two from the back + registration number</p>

<p>Yes, it is necessary to put down the test book serial number.</p>

<p>Item 8 and 9 are the test form and form code numbers from the BACK of the book. They are even labeled with "8" and "9" so you don't mess it up. </p>

<p>Item 10 is the serial number from the FRONT of the test book. </p>

<p>It's very important that you get these numbers and codes entered correctly so your test can be scored accurately. Not everyone in a room has the same sections in the same order because there are different forms of the test - this does a lot to prevent the "roaming eyes" cheating from doing any good. The answer key won't be the same if you have a different form of the test.</p>

<p>what if i forgot to write the number from the front of the booklet?</p>

<p>Here's a best-case scenario... IF you can get the name of your test center supervisor from your guidance counselor or College Board, and IF you can find their office very early on Monday morning, and IF they have not already boxed & sealed & mailed off the materials to College Board, and IF you approach them with the right attitude (apologetic & urgent but not demanding or yelling), the staff should be able to locate your answer sheet and test book with your name on the back and fill it in for you. Failing that, if you call College Board and are persistent enough to locate the actual office where the materials are received, maybe they would do it. </p>

<p>My guess is that they will be able to grade your test because they can use the test form & form code to sort your answer sheet into the correct category for scantron grading. Items 8 and 9 (the test form and form code from the back of the test book) are the two most important and you should have been told by the proctor to double check that these are right or scores may be delayed. They may only need the serial number to match up the actual test book you used if they need to do that for some reason, but I don't know for sure. </p>

<p>good luck.</p>
