Has anyone repeated dna test with different results?

I took 2 ancestry tests 'myself' and they show significant differences.

The first test was taken earlier this year. Results were 62% Scandanavian, 8% Caucus/Persian, 30% British Isles. The Persian was a surprise as my paper tree is solely focused in central/northern Europe and the British Isles.

Ancestry said there was a data issue and offered a second test for free. The results were 53% Scandanavian, 24% Southern Europe, 7% Caucuses, 16% East Europe.

Now I think the first test was closer than the second, especially since the Caucus portion still exists.

Why would there be a difference between the results? I think that a third test would give different results than the first two. Am I crazY?
