I didn't even know that was possible! But if the test is computer based, and is interpreted by the computer, what are the chances of it being wrong??? Recheck would help correcting human error. So I don't get it at all.

There is a score recheck but I've never heard of anyone's score changing because of it. I personally feel it's another way for them to make money, and i don't even think they check anything, they just send you a photocopied standard letter that they checked it and your score is the same.
That being said, if you were scoring vastly different on your practice exams vs your test score, then for peace of mind you might want to recheck it. Just don't get your hopes up too much, I know the feeling of disbelief we get when we don't get the score we want. Good luck!
