ANKENY, Iowa (March 27, 2019) - Ankeny High School sophomore Wyatt Eason earned the highest possible ACT® composite score of 36.
On average only around two-tenths of one percent of students who take the ACT earn the top score. Among test takers in the graduating class of 2018, just 3,741 out of more than 1.9 million students earned a score of 36.
“Ankeny High School is very proud of Wyatt’s achievement. His perfect score on the ACT is phenomenal, but achieving that as a sophomore is very uncommon,” said Dr. Jeff Hawkins, AHS Principal. “Wyatt is pursuing a very rigorous course of study at AHS, taking college level, honors, and AP courses.”
The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading, and science. Each test is scored on a scale of one to 36, and a student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores. Some students also take the optional ACT writing test, but the score for that test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score.
“This achievement is significant and rare,” ACT Chief Executive Officer Marten Roorda said. “While test scores are just one of multiple criteria that most colleges consider when making admission decisions, a perfect ACT composite score is advantageous to pursuing education and career goals.”
