Jan. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Bucknell University said it inflated its freshmen entrance-exam scores for seven years, burnishing students’ credentials.

From 2006 through 2012, the Lewisburg, Pennsylvania university annually omitted an average of 32 students’ SAT scores, most of which were lower than what the school reported. On the combined 1,600-point scale for the critical reading and math sections, average scores appeared to be 16 points higher than they actually were.
