SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Hundreds of students are preparing to retake their AP Tests, which starts Monday.

“I'm having to put in copious amounts of studying because my brain in nowhere in the shape as it used to be,” said Angelo Carrasco, 17.

Carrasco, a junior at Scripps Ranch High School, said he’s studying for four AP Tests, which he took nearly two months ago.

“It's stressful because I'm thinking whether I can get the same type of scores I would've gotten when I did it in May.” said Carrasco. 

The College Board threw out his scores, and hundreds of other Scripps Ranch High School students because they said the students were sitting too close.

“It's almost like they're trying to give us a disadvantage,” said Carrasco. 

The San Diego Unified School District filed for a temporary restraining order Monday to prevent the testing from moving forward. The hearing will take place on Friday. If the judge denies the temporary restraining order, testing could begin Monday at Marshall Middle School.

A spokesperson for the District said pursuing legal action is to support the students. It’s unclear how much it’ll cost the district. 

“The legal pursuit is for principle,” said Carrasco.
