Teen earns perfect scores on college entrance exams
CANTON, Ohio, United States — An Ohio teenager hoping to become a book editor someday has earned perfect scores on both the ACT (American College Test) and SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) college entrance exams.
The Canton Repository reports 18-year-old Dinah Ward, a student at Canton South High School in northeast Ohio, took the exams previously and worked with a tutor work to achieve perfection.
Only 0.2 percent of the 1.9 million people who took the ACT last year earned a perfect score of 36. The newspaper reports there weren’t any data available to show how many SAT test takers managed a perfect score of 1,600 in 2018.
Canton South Principal Jeff Moore says Ward is “one of the nicest down-to-earth students” he’s ever met.
Ward wants to study English at Columbia University, an Ivy League school in New York City. /cbb
