A Bloomingdale High School student who is one of just four students in Hillsborough County schools to ace the SATs told TBO.com that he was surprised by the perfect score.
Ian Ludden, 18, took the college entrance exam in his junior year.
Ian told TBO.com:
"I thought I had gotten a perfect on the math section, but I also thought I had a few questions wrong on the reading portion."
He was wrong. Ian earned a perfect score of 1600.
He is in an elite club. According to TBO.com, there were only 360 perfect scores on the SAT out of 1.6 million students who took the exam in 2012.
It's no surpise that the Bloomingdale High senior already has been accepted at several colleges, including the University of Florida and Georgia Tech. He's waiting to hear back from Princeton and MIT, according to TBO.com.
Ian has no secret for his success, saying that he studied a lot and that a love of reading helped him with the grammar questions.
