Lots of high school students are just hoping they’ll just scrape by and get accepted into college, but 17-year-old Anoushka Ambavanekar from Vista del Lago High School isn’t going to have that problem. The junior from California just earned a perfect score on the ACT college admissions test.
“I was shocked,” the teen admits. “I was like ‘wow this is crazy.’ I got it on my first try.
Her achievement is so rare, less than 3,000 of the two-million students across the country who take the test have done it. The Vista Del Lago High School student credits her perfect score to doing practice tests every day and says she “really drilled on them.” Anoushka hasn’t started applying to colleges yet, but this score is sure to help when she does.
