Missing ACT Test Score Infuriates Hard-Working Students, Parents

WEST LOS ANGELES ( — For students from many schools, it's been months of studying and thousands of dollars spent on tutoring for possibly nothing in return.

Jewlz Fahn's twin daughters from Pacific Palisades are among the 125 students who took the ACT exam and whose scores are reportedly missing. The ACT is a crucial test for students to get into colleges. Her daughters, like dozens of other students, took the test April 8 but have been told the scores are missing.

"All we want are answers. I think most of all, we want our children's scores," Fahn said.

The scores are dependent on which colleges will accept a student. Plus in order to apply for early action or early decision, colleges need their scores by a certain deadline.

"I'm really frustrated because I know I did really well," Sarah Fahn said.

ACT provided statement that says in part:

"ACT sincerely regrets any inconvenience that impacted students and their families may experience as a result of this very unfortunate situation."

Now the students are back to studying during their summer break as ACT has offered the students whose scores went missing a chance to take the test again, no charge, June 10.

"I'm not prepared for that. That's not enough time for me," Hannah Fahn said

ACT also says that they are still hopeful they will find these students' scores.
