I was once asked for my SAT scores (14-years-old at the time). That one
took some research (I finally had to call my high school guidance counselor
and ask him to pull my transcript), but I was happy to supply them when I
found them.

Along those lines, a friend of mine when interviewing for a technical
writing job, with many, many years of documented experience in the field,
was asked to tell what their GPA was when they graduated college with their
tech-writing-related English degree. That degree was earned 10+ years
before.
