CHESTERFIELD, MO (KPLR) – A senior at Parkway South High School has joined the rare club of students from across the nation to earn a perfect score on the ACT college entrance exam.

Becca Parker said she has not yet decided where she’ll go to college, but knows she wants to study engineering.

Less than one-tenth of one percent of all students who take the ACT earns a perfect score.

The ACT is broken into four parts: English, math, reading, and science. Each part is scored on its own scale of 1 to 36. A student’s overall test score is the average of those parts. The ACT is accepted by all major colleges and universities.
