SPANISH FORT, Ala. (WKRG) — As you would probably imagine, getting a full 36 on the ACT is very hard to do, but one local high school junior just did it!
Carolina Triboni is feeling pretty great! The Spanish Fort High School junior has a shot at going to pretty much any college she wants to with that perfect ACTscore. The most recent data we could find shows the odds of getting a perfect score are less than .19-Percent!
Carolina says she was a little newrous at first because she was one of the last of her friends to get her score.
“I kept refreshing the page every 5 minutes until it appeared and I had to calm myself for 2 minutes before I clicked to see my score and when I finally did, I started shaking. I could not believe that it actually happened,” she recalls.
She says she couldn’t have done it without her counselors, administrators, and peers, and the ACT bootcamp at her school, as well as a little friendly competition.
“Sometimes I went out with a couple of friends and we did study groups, and having that support, you want to challenge yourself to somewhat compete with your friends in a friendly competition, so I think that also helped me,” said Triboni.
for others who will take the act in the future, carolina’s advice is “know your calculator” for the math portion of the test. As for her future, she says her dream is to go to MIT.
Spanish Fort High announced this exciting news on its Facebook page, saying she scored a perfect 36.
