MND is proud to announce that junior Julia Evans earned the highest possible ACT composite score of 36. On average, less than one-tenth of one percent of students who take the ACT earn the top score. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2017, only 2,760 out of more than 2 million graduates who took the ACT earned a composite score of 36.
The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, each scored on a scale of 1–36. A student's composite score is the average of the four test scores.
In a letter to Julia recognizing her exceptional achievement, ACT Chief Executing Officer Marten Roorda stated, "Your achievement on the ACT is significant and rare. While the test score is just one of multiple criteria that most colleges consider when making admission decisions, your exceptional ACT composite score should prove helpful as you pursue your education and career goals".
ACT test scores are accepted by all major four-year colleges and universities across the United States.
