Hundreds of BK students forced to retake SAT

Hundreds of Brooklyn students are being forced to hit the books again after learning that their SAT scores were tossed out.

The educational testing service that gives the exam on behalf of the College Board says that administrators at the Packer Collegiate Institute in Brooklyn Heights set desks too close together.

A spokesperson also says there were other administrative issues when nearly 200 students from about 50 schools took the SAT on May 5.

Students were given until this Saturday to retake the test.
