(Newser) – As far as anxiety-fueling tests, here's one that tops the SAT: the SAT do-over. At least 100 high schoolers in Loudoun County, Va., have been told they may have to take the SAT all over again because their tests have gone missing (some reports say 100 kids; WJLA puts the number of students at 300). The College Board, which administers the exam, says "every effort is being made to locate the [missing] shipment" of tests, which were taken by students on May 2 at Broad Run High School and sent via UPS.

But it has also scheduled a June 20 makeup date. NBC Washington points out that date roughly coincides with the students' final exams. One student who spent more than 100 hours and $1,000 to prep for the test sounds predictably annoyed: "It's been over a month since I've done all my studying. It's going to affect my scores."
