To achieve a perfect score on a college entrance exam is highly unusual but to get a perfect score on both the ACT and SAT is downright amazing. That’s exactly what New Albany High School junior Arman Odabas has done!
According to the folks at ACT, fewer than one-tenth of one percent of students get a final score of 36. In 2010, about 1.56 million students took the ACT and 588 got the top score. The same year, the average national ACT score was 21. According to the College Board’s SAT Percentile Ranking Data, 382 college-bound seniors scored 2400 in 2010.
Arman, along with his parents, were recognized at a recent New Albany-Plain Local Board of Education meeting for his outstanding achievement. When asked to reflect on his accomplishment, Arman simply said that school is something he has always liked. He appreciates the opportunities he has at New Albany High School and the personal interest his teacher have shown to him.
