Local student achieves top ACT score

NORMAN — Madolyn Phillips, daughter of Kris Osmun and Harris Phillips, and a home-schooled senior from Norman, earned a top composite score of 36 on a recent ACT test.

Nationally, while the actual number of students earning a composite score of 36 varies, on average, less than one-10th of 1 percent of students earn the top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2013, only 1,162 of 1.8 million students earned a 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.

Some students also take ACT’s optional Writing Test, but the score for that test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score.

In a letter recognizing the 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.”
