Two More D211 Students Earn Highest Score on ACT Exam
Each year, junior and senior students all over the country take the ACT exam. For many, this test serves as the gateway to making it into their first-choice for a college or university. The goal is to receive the best composite score possible in the categories of science, mathematics, reading, English, and an optional writing test. Each exam is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student’s score is the average of the four test scores.
Fremd High School students Mazin Bokhari and Yuki Koike each earned a composite score of 36 on the ACT, which is the highest possible score on the exam. Earlier this academic year, four other District 211 students achieved the same result; Jack Riedy from Palatine High School, Nikita Pillai from James B. Conant High School, and Soumik Biswas and Fiona Helgren from William Fremd High School received a 36 on the exam.
More than 1.7 million students take the exam in the United States, and only 781 of those scored a 36. These six students honored this year join an elite group of High School District 211 students who have achieved the highest possible composite score on the ACT exam. Since 1998, a total of 53 District 211 students have earned a 36 on the ACT. See the complete list here. For more information about the ACT test, please visit here.
