Anoushka Ambavanekar, a junior at Vista del Lago High School, earned the highest possible composite score on her ACT test a 36.  

Only around 1% of students who take the ACT earn a top score. In the U.S. the high school students that graduated in 2018, only 2,760 out of more than 2 million graduates who took the ACT earned a perfect 36, according to ACT.

The ACT consists of tests in English, math, reading and science, each scored on a scale of 1-26. The student's composite score is an average of the four test scores. The writing test is reported separate and isn't included in the composite score.

CBS13 and Good Day Sacramento were so impressed by Anoushka's rare perfect composite score that they featured her on their newscasts. Watch the video.
