Does anyone know if the scores received on the unofficial score report change when the final score report is uploaded into AADSAS?

I read somewhere that the "unofficial" scores can actually change once they are fitted to a normal distribution for your test.

I think I saw @Ari Rezaei explain this well somewhere, but from what I understand it only ever changes if there was some cheating scandal or the power went out or something major like that.

Pretty much. Once someone got a 1 in QR, they had their score audited and the QR score was updated. Your scores are your scores, the DAT is graded against a preset population of students which is why you get your scores immediately, you aren't compared against students who are taking the exam that day.

Nah hasn't changed either time for me. Ari explained it perfectly. Perhaps our new scores are data for people the next day though :D
