ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – Abby Lammers, a junior at Parkway North High School, recently scored a perfect 36 on the ACT college admissions and placement exam.
Nationally, less than one-tenth of one percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score of 36. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2013, only 1,162 of 1.8 million students earned a composite 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.
ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. colleges, and exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.
