(END SOT) It may just be THE most important



test a high school student will ever
take.

But, for some four-thousand
students across the world who took the
S-A-Ts in October, the results were NOT
what they appeared to be.

OQ= SHOW GRAPHIC HERE!!!



Last week, the agency that
administers the S-A-Ts, announced it
found scoring errors on four-thousand
of the nearly half-a-million tests
taken in October -- causing a score
difference by as much as 390-points.

The College Board re-scanned the
tests, but did NOT punish students who
benefitted from the mistake.

But, for most schools like
Roanoke College, which had
13-applicants with flawed scores, it
never really mattered.

OQ= Most of the schools say they're


just glad the board notified them of
the mistakes when it did, especially
since this is the time most colleges
post deadlines for applications.

The problem isn't over, though.

On Tuesday, the College Board
announced another 16-hundred tests that
were under review for reasons unrelated
to the error still have to be
re-scanned.

The board hopes to publish those
scores by next week.

Patriots vs. Dazzle It was wacky wig Wednesday and :00 the members of the Star City Squad all
got into the spirit of the evening with

Anthony Grundy also got into the
spirit of things - NO wig, just a
natural fro as the former NC State star
busts a wide open three - Grundy threw
down 25 for the Dazzle.

The his backcourt mate Will Bynum
would pick up 13 assists last night as
he finds Seth Doliboa, who hits a three
of is own from dead on. Seth knocked
in 24 for the Dazz. *CG final Fayetteville

2 of his 30 points as the Dazzle beats
Fayetteville 115-to-114.

consecutive regular-season games for
the franchise. He also led the Saints
to the only playoff victory in club
history in 2000. Last season he
