SAT Scores Flew off UPS Truck in Texas

What a mishap!! It’s already enough to prepare for the SAT exam and hope to do well. It’s another thing to have to retake it due to no fault of your own. But this may very well be the reality for about 55 students in El Paso Texas after their test scores went flying off the UPS truck on the highway.

UPS Truck lost SAT exams for high schoolers in Texas

The El Paso Independent School District (EPISD) said staff recovered all but 55 tests, and now the district is working with the College Board, which administers the exam, to see what needs to be done. The incident effects students who took the Oct. 27 section of the test.

“Today, they called a meeting for the senior class and they kind of told us, ‘Hey, guys, the rumors are true. The SAT scores were compromised. They flew out of the UPS bus,’” said senior class vice president Santiago Gonzalez.

The students are concerned about identity theft as their personal information was listed on the exam. Ironically an El Paso High School senior Freddy Chavez captured video of the papers flying on Mesa Street last Friday; but he says at the time he had no idea they were SATs from his school.


“On the test score sheets, we have all of our information and identification on the score — our location where we live, our address, our date of birth, all of our information. And it stinks because our identity is out there right now. Some people could have picked up some flyers,” Martinez said.
