Manhattan High School student Ethan M. Pauls and 13 other seniors from Kansas were recognized in Topeka today for earning a top score of 36 in their ACT, the college admissions exam. The students were honored at a luncheon during the Kansas ACT State Organization 2012 annual conference at the Capitol Plaza Hotel.
The fourteen students will receive engraved plaques in the shape of the state of Kansas. Each of the students’ schools will also receive a plaque with the student’s name and test date.
The ACT consists of tests in English, math, reading, and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36. A student’s composite score is the average of the four scores.
Students who earn a top ACT composite score of 36 should have a choice of the widest possible range of future educational opportunities. ACT scores are accepted at all colleges and universities across the nation.
