Throw another mistake on the barbie 

Oops! The College Board now says another 1600 SAT exams need to be looked at for possible scoring errors. And rather than a "minute" number of grades from the original 4,000 erroneously-scored exams being reported as higher than earned, it turns out the number is about 600. Now, that's not a high percentage of the 495,000 exams they score, but it's nonetheless too high an error rate for a test that carries a great deal of importance. Expect more than a few more schools to dump the SAT.
