Kamran and Pratt receive perfect scores

According to the ACT website the average student in Indiana scores a 22.3 on the ACT, but senior Usama Kamran and junior Kyle Pratt each scored a 36, a perfect score.

The ACT is a national college admissions test. It covers English, math, reading and science. Only 1 in 3300 get a 36 on the test.

“When I took the test I thought I did pretty well, but I definitely wasn’t expecting a 36,” Kamran said.

Neither student did very much preparation before taking the test. Kamran used free online practice tests from Sparknotes.

Both received special recognition from the school and the ACT company, including a personal thank you from Principal Urban.

“One of my neighbors brought me a cake as a gift for doing so well,” said Pratt.
