  • Despite his assertion that an 800 was a perfect score, the SAT's had been recentered in 1996 and while 800 (1600 on the SAT) remained the top score, it no longer guaranteed perfection. On the old, uninflated scale a score from a 1490 to 1600 could result in a 1600 on the new, inflated scale. So Jermaine's score under the uninflated system might have been as low as 750 or 745. Or it could have bee a true 800.
