The College Board lost all of my class's AP Scores!

<p>I posted this to see if this scenerio happened to anyone else, and if their scores were ever recovered. </p>

<p>I go to a competitive charter school in NC, which offers AP Latin Literature. This year, 9 students (including myself) took the exam. However, when we received our AP exam reports, Latin Literature was not mentioned anywhere. Duke University (where I'm going next year) received no Latin score for me either.</p>

<p>Basically, the entire class's scores are missing. I called the College Board and talked to them for a while, but they said that they needed my school to contact them. They didn't take me seriously and thought I was prank calling them--apparently there was no record of me even paying for the AP Latin test. </p>

<p>So I called my school and spoke with the dean, who called our AP testing coordinator on vacation, who spoke to the College Board himself. He also contacted FexEx, who shipped the scores, and learned that they had been transported successfully to the College Board offices for grading. The folks at the College Board said they would "write up a report" about the situation. </p>

<p>After a week, we had heard nothing. Not satisfied, I called the College Board again the other day. They said the situation was being taken care of. Not accepting this for an answer, I asked to be transferred to a supervisor. The supervisor assured me that the case was under investigation. In fact, according to him it had actually been transferred to the "Department of Investigations" (which sounds like something out of a Harry Potter book). </p>

<p>Now, this sounds to me like the College Board folks are--excuse me--just talking out of their asses. Maybe I just have an inherent hatred for the fine establishment of the College Board (don't we all?), but the chances seem slim to none that my class's tests will ever be recovered. </p>

<p>Did anyone whose test has been "misplaced" by the College Board actually ever receive a score?</p>

<p>yall should all demand 5s.</p>

<p>sue them, i wouldnt sit for 2 to 3 hours to take a freaking test and not get my scores. they would have ddefinitely been sued.</p>

<p>I know a couple of people who haven't found out their scores on various tests for unknown reasons. That really sucks, though. The entire process seems really bureaucratic. </p>

<p>Did you pay the $80-something yourself? I'd be ten times more ****ed if that's the case.</p>

<p>Let us know how it turns out!</p>

<p>what competitive charter school do you go to? do you live in the triangle? just curious because i don't know of any schools in the area that teach latin</p>

<p>Well they havent sent me my late AP art history score, im afraid they may have lost it.</p>

<p>WARUM IST DER COLLEGEBOARD SO GAY?</p>

<p>Forgive me; Im typing in a hurry so if my German grammar is off oh well. (I know, it's in Germ-English)</p>

<p>Wow, I feel really sorry for you. I hope in the end everything works out, but you're probably right in being pessimestic about the situation. That is.. pretty lame. I read another post the other day about CB not getting someone's MC scores, and they offered to give the guy a 4 (from what his essays looked like), retake the MC section, or a refund. Maybe that will offer something that resembles that.</p>

<p>do you go to raleigh charter? if you do, are u on the quiz bowl?</p>

<p>and just wait a little more.. they rarely lose them.</p>

<p>Yeah, I wasn't on quiz bowl because they met the same time SGA did.</p>

<p>they don't need another problem like the october SATs. they'll do what they can to find them.</p>

<p>RETAKE the MC? ...wait u mean JUST the MC section or like the whole test?.....and like they when would the retake date be / where would it be........</p>

<p>oh and btw..what did he pick?</p>

<p>The College Board lost both my AP European History scores and my Biology scores. What they will do is give you an estimate on what you're score might be (based on if they have half the test, which sucks), or they will let you retake it, just in case you don't have enough crap going on in your life right now. They also only really give you about 3 months to study for it, since you have to do it before December I think, and it will be independent study unless you are able to get some help from your teacher. I seriously want to punch the College Board out. Based on only HALF of my test, I would get a 2. That means, for all the know, that I could have a 4 or a 5 depending on my multiple choice. And they haven't even bothered with my Biology test.</p>

<p>^ Why did you suddenly respond to a 5 year old thread?</p>

<p>^ Im just adding to the bump but... Ask yourself the same question!</p>
