Crazy test day experiences? Terrible exam proctor? Share your story!

May 1, 2010

Here are stories of terrible SAT exam proctoring: the proctor audibly chatting on her cellphone the entire test, or snipping roses from a bouquet and distracting the students. I’ve had students tell me that their proctor didn’t watch the clock and just let the students keep on working (sweet extra time!) or cut them short (unfair!). This New York Times article recounts some horror tales which will hopefuly make your test day experience look good in contrast.

Have a test day horror story of your own to recount? From terrible proctors to forgotten admission tickets to getting lost on the way to the test locale – I’ve heard some good ones. Please share yours in the comments!
