Several local high school students scored an impressive 36 – the highest possible score – on the ACT college admissions and placement exam.
Those students include Abby Lammers and Ryan Wahidi from Parkway North and Catherine Lambert of Marquette High.
Nationally, while the actual number of students earning a composite score of 36 varies from year to year, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score of 36.
The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student’s composite score is the average of four test scores. The ACT assesses high school students’ general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work.
