Two Parker seniors, Solana Beach resident Cameron Burnett, 18, and Anoushka Bose, 17, earned the highest possible ACT Composite score of 36.
On average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a perfect score.
The test consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of a student’s readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.
Students received letters from the ACT chief executive officer recognizing this exceptional achievement.
“Your achievement on the ACT is significant and rare,” wrote Janet Godwin.
“While test scores are just one multiple criteria that most colleges consider when making admission decisions, your exceptional ACT Composite score should prove helpful as you pursue your education and career goals.”
The ACT test scores are accepted by all major US colleges and are used when considering a student for admission.
