About 4,400 of the 500,000 students who took the test in October 2005 were affected by an answer sheet scanning problem. The affected students filed a lawsuit citing that they mistakenly received lower scores as a result of the scanning issue. Per the settlement, each affected student will be eligible for about $275 and has the option of submitting a claim for more money.

The College Board reported initial incorrect scores to colleges and universities, however the correct scores were resubmitted once the problem was discovered and corrected.
