P.J. Gelinas Junior High School ninth-grader William Sun has accomplished something very few upperclassmen do by their senior year – he earned a perfect score on the ACT exam.
William’s score landed him in the top 1 percent of the more than 2.1 million students who took the test. However, this is not the first time he earned top honors on a college preparation exam; he earned a score of 1,500 out of a possible 1,600 on the SAT as an eighth-grader.
“I was excited to receive my high marks. It made all of the hard work I put into preparing for the exam worth it,” said William. “To those getting ready to take the test, I recommend they take many of the practice exams to get used to the style and pacing of the actual test. I believe the preparation leaves you feeling ready to succeed.”
William felt it was important to take the exam early in ninth grade to leave a positive impression on the colleges he hopes to attend. He plans to major in medical science.
