LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. (MEDIA GENERAL) – Bad news for about 100 students in Loudoun County, Virginia: Remember the relief you felt after finally finishing the SAT earlier this month? Pressure’s back on, because you have to retake the test.

Officials from The College Board, the company that administers the college aptitude test, confirmed Wednesday students who took the test May 2 at Broad Run High School in Ashburn, Virginia, will have to retake the exam after their tests were lost.

Needless to say, those students aren’t happy.

“It’s been over a month since I’ve done all my studying,” Caroline Quinilty told NBC Washington. “It’s going to affect my scores.”

The College Board released a statement, saying they understand the student’s frustrations.
