Hundreds of ACT exams lost then found
By Lindsay Henry.
Once high school seniors take a college entrance examination, like the ACT, all they want is to get their scores back as quickly as possible. Student Brian Parrish took the test on Sept. 23 and is still waiting to learn how he fared.
“I had been waiting for a month to get my scores back and finally, we got an email that says the carrier lost mine along with 200 other scores that were just lost, they didn’t know where they went and they just kind of disappeared is what it sounded like,” says Brian.
ACT officials confirmed that two boxes containing roughly 200 exams were lost in transit. When Parrish received the letter, he learned that he would have just a few days to study before the retake, a hard thing for someone involved in extracurricular activities like football at Cinco Ranch High School.
“I get out of school at 2:35 and practice until 6, so basically I would have no time to just get my homework done,” says Brian. His parents were upset that he was not given enough time to prepare.
“It was a Wednesday that they notified us by email and that Saturday was the next day they were supposed to test, so it only gave them three days really to prepare or to change their schedule so that they could be present at that testing time,” says Brian’s mother Maureen.
