Some folks have poor test taking skills. 
Most of them don't know the content very well.

Those aren't the people I'm talking about, obviously.  I've mentioned folks I knew in HS who came back with relatively poor scores while I thought they were pretty bright folks, and vice versa.  And the SAT of course doesn't really measure what you KNOW, they measure how you think.  A person can have all kinds of facts in his head and do poorly because his logic skills are lacking.

Really?  I view the SAT as the opposite of how you put it.  

Try a math problem without knowing the formula needed to be utilized.  
Try the summary of a paragraph question without knowing the unique vocabulary contained within it.

Sure, some smart people may be overly stressed or lack confidence, but that's the exception.  If a test isn't hard, you shrug and do it.

My small old man yells at cloud moment is that it is flat out nonsensical that an astonishing amount of money can swing with the dang PSAT.

For me it was basically the difference between being able to go to college, and not.  My parents were not able to contribute to my education, times were very tough for them, at that time.
