GAITHERSBURG, Md. (AP) - A Montgomery County high school student recorded a cellphone video at a testing center, potentially invalidating the Advanced Placement tests of about 275 classmates.

The Gazette reports that the College Board is reviewing the incident, which was reported by Quince Orchard High School's principal.

A student recorded the video at the testing center Monday and posted it on Twitter.

Since exam-day policies bar students from having cellphones, smartphones and tablets at a testing center, the College Board is considering whether to cancel the AP psychology exam scores.

A College Board spokesman says the case is being reviewed, but that it appears that the "security of the AP test about to be taken was not compromised." He says it appears to have been a simple violation of the cellphone policy.
