Statistics on Multiple Perfect Scores

<p>My son made 36 on his ACT, 2400 on his SAT, 800 on his SAT II Math 2, and 5's on AP tests for AP Calc AB and AP Stat. He has more scores coming, but so far so good. Anyone know of any stats on one student making these kinds of scores all on the first try?</p>

<p>300/2 million make 36 on the ACT, and about the same make a 2400 on the SAT.</p>

<p>considerably more make 800 in Math 2 and 5's in AP tests.</p>

<p>Don't forget christiansoldier! It's not uncommon, popoagie.</p>

<p>whodareswins - you can't forget Lorem Ipsum's son!!!!!</p>

<p>The ACT letter says in 2009, 638 out of almost 1.5 million made a 36. I'm sure there is a heavy overlap w/perfect SAT's, but would be great to have a statistic. Thanks.</p>

<p>Christiansoldier scored 35 on the ACT. I don't know Xiggi's score on either test, and I'm not sure if he even took the ACT.</p>

<p>Unlikely. Most people don't take one after scoring perfect on the other.</p>

<p>I would say that it's probably ~20-30 a year who score 36+2400 if I had to speculate. Surely, almost all of those people get 800's on their Subject Tests and 5's on AP tests; perfect scores on those exams are relatively common.</p>

<p>You won't find any official statistics on the matter.</p>

<p>MOf course I realize there have been other students who have done extremely well. Mainly intereste in statistics.</p>

<p>A couple of years ago there was a college board official who said therebwere no statistics because it was so rare. My son took his SAT ans ACT a week apart because most schools he was interested inwanted to see both.</p>

<p>There are no statistics because it isn't tracked; one testing agency doesn't ask your scores on the other agency's test. It has nothing to do with rarity.</p>

<p>What schools? The practice of wanting to see all results from both tests is very rare.</p>

<p>I'll do some research on CCers who scored 2400 to see how many of them scored 36, and we can extrapolate that to estimate the total number.</p>

<p>From the class of 2014 admissions cycle (all 2400ers that I could find are listed; those who also earned 36 are in bold, and those who took the ACT but did not score 36 are in italics):</p>

<p>So I found...one! :)</p>

<p>Percent of 2400ers who took ACT: 20.0% (7/35)
Percent of 2400ers who also scored 36: 2.9% (1/35) </p>

<p>Thirty-five 2400ers is quite a lot, considering that these were just the ones that I found in the decisions threads on CC for the 2014 admissions cycle. If that ~3% figure is representative of the entire group of 2400ers for that year, there were about nine (.03*297) people who scored both 2400 and 36.</p>

<p>^You forgot ralec114.... :D</p>

<p>^ Someone so extraordinary wouldn't be very helpful in determining a representative proportion.</p>

<p>As someone who has much respect for you silver, I must admit that at times you come off as a know it all...Please do not think that I am saying you are one, just that you come off as one sometimes.</p>

<p>^ What did I say? :confused:</p>

<p>Sorry, I mean it seems like you always have an answer for everything, it's very appreciative at times, but it seems like you just like to flaunt that you know a lot of things; As I said however, I have much respect for you, so don't mind me.</p>

<p>Such as when? I don't want to give that impression, so it would be helpful if you could specifically point out instances of it.</p>

<p>I think that says a lot about the SAT in comparison to the ACT.</p>

<p>Keep in mind, though, that the majority of the 2400ers didn't even take the ACT.</p>
