Identical twins Hayes and David Edwards have now each scored perfectly on their ACTs. The Houston Academy seniors-to-be have strong ties to Eufaula with their mother, Jennifer Wood Edwards, being from here. Grandparents Bill and Robbie Wood still reside in Eufaula.
The Edwards each scored a perfect 36 on their ACT.
David was the first to have the perfect ACT, and being competitive, Hayes, who first scored a 35, re-took the test and made the 36. David’s ACT score a year ago was 33.
The ACT score is one of two national standardized tests accepted by all colleges and universities in the United States. It consists of tests in math, science, reading, and English, each scored 1-36. The composite score is made up of an average of all four subject tests.
“Only around two-tenths of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score,” it was noted in a press release from ACT. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2018, only 3,741 out of 1.9 million students scored a perfect 36.
