    A misprint on the SAT means that some graduating high school seniors won't have their entire tests scored, thanks to a misprint that may have cut short the time they were given to finish.

    The two sections of the test administered June 6 that had the misprints will not be scored, said the College Board, which administers the tests.

    Now, students who took the SAT that day will be given the chance to retake the all-day college admissions test for free.

    Still, the College Board said it's confident the test scores would be reliable even without those sections being scored.

    The College Board, which administers the SAT, explained on its website.

    "The time allotted for the last reading section was incorrect in the student test books but correct in the script and manual provided to test center supervisors," it said. "The copy in the student test books indicated '25 minutes' while the manual and script indicated the correct time limit of '20 minutes.'"
