    Recently got my results back and was not happy. Figured what the heck, why not put down $55 for a recheck. Waiting to hear back right now, but was wondering in the mean time if anyone has had their score change (up or down) on a recheck?

    I've heard it's remote, but any info would be useful. Thanks.

    In the days of the pencil bubble forms, a recheck may have been worth a shot. In the days of computerized testing and scoring, there really aren't any moving parts that could go wrong. So you would send in the $55 and they would say, "nope the computer worked", and pocket your money.

    I agree. The most that they will do is recheck their internal computer systems. COMPUTERS ARE NEVER WRONG, lol. I know that isn't true, but I think they would treat it as such.
