Texas teen gets perfect ACT score

March 13, 2013 at 4:36 PM   |   Comments

AUSTIN, Texas, March 13 (UPI) -- A Texas student said he was feeling confident when he took the ACT college placement test, but he was surprised to learn he had achieved a perfect score.

Arnav Sastry, 17, of Austin said he was confident when he took the test because he had done well on six practice tests. But he was still shocked and elated to learn he had earned a perfect composite score of 36, a feat accomplished by only one in 1,000 test takers, the Austin American-Statesman reported Wednesday.

"I knew I was going to do well," Sastry said. "I didn't expect to do that well."

Sastry said he is hoping his test score will help him get into the University of Texas at Austin, the Georgia Institute of Technology or, "if I get really lucky," Stanford University. He said he wants to study computer science.
