CSISD Student Earns Highest-Possible Score on ACT

College Station High School junior Jiatao Liang earned a composite score of 36 on the ACT exam, which is the highest-possible score one can receive.

Nationally, while the actual number of students earning a composite score of 36 varies from year to year, on average, less than one-tenth of one percent of students who take the ACT earns the top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2013, only 1,162 of 1.8 million students earned a composite score of 36.

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student's composite score is the average of the four test scores.

In a letter recognizing this exceptional achievement, ACT CEO Jon Whitmore said, “While test scores are just one of the many 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 U.S. colleges, and exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.

Liang is the son of Faming Liang and Quin Chang.

This is second composite ACT score of 36 received by a CSISD student recently. This past October, A&M Consolidated senior Bryan Conlee earned the honor.
