A College Board spokesman tells NJ.com (http://bit.ly/1TqHVH9 ) that the organization that oversees the exam is confident in the reliability of the scores. The College Board says it doesn't want to cause undue anxiety by making students think they have to take the test again.

The test incorrectly said students had 25 minutes to complete one section, while directions read out loud correctly told students they had 20 minutes.

Those who want to take the test again can do so in October.
