Is the College Board reusing new SATs already?

According to the chatter on College Confidential, some students are reporting that they received June SATs identical to their March tests.

At this point, it’s also common knowledge that Asian test-prep companies have been distributing the March test. Inevitably, then, some lucky students will have prepped for the June exam using…the June exam. (As if barring adults  from non-released exams was ever going to prevent this sort of occurrence.) 

This comes just as the College Board and Khan Academy announce that they have successfully leveled the playing field among test-takers. 

The College Board has been in the habit of recycling tests for quite a while, but it would stand to reason that three months isn’t quite long enough to wait. 

Somehow I don’t think this is what the College Board meant by “transparency.”
