If you don't live in the US, then you may not know exactly what the SAT is. The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is a dreaded exam that all high school students in the United States have to take for college admissions. The SAT is given multiple times a year at thousands of testing centers throughout the US. Unless there are special circumstances, the test is given on a Saturday, starting at approximately 9:00 AM in each time zone. So basically if you aren't paying attention, a single SATurday morning can ruin the rest of your life!
Back in 2003 when Collin took the test, 1600 was a perfect score. Remember, Collin is a smart guy. He's an Ivy League Grad. But is he smart enough to get every question wrong? What was Collin's final SAT score? Just 400 points combined (math & verbal). In case you are curious, 400 points is the lowest SAT 'raw score' in history. Congratulations to Collin.
But there's always room for improvement. Collin accidentally got 2 questions right in the math section. I guess you can say Collin intentionally failed at failure. How humiliating! Maybe he'll do worse next time.
Sure 400 seems low . . . but it rounds up to like 540 Canadian right? You can read more about Collin's experiment here.
