Burnsville High School junior aces the ACT in first attempt

Burnsville High School junior Will Trussell has earned quite the distinction for himself. He received a perfect score of 36 on the ACT exam, an accomplishment that less than 0.1 percent of students nationwide obtain.

The ACT is a curriculum-based achievement exam consisting of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36. The composite score is the average of the four test scores.

What’s even more astonishing is that Will took the test just one time and didn’t really prepare for it.
