Seven Hills Junior Achieves Perfect Composite ACT Score
Seven Hills School congratulates junior Andrew Yang, who recently earned a perfect composite ACT score.
Yang received perfect subscores in English, math, reading, and science.
“Andy is the only junior (and the only person in recent memory) to score straight 36s across all the subtests, including English, math, reading, and science, which gave him an overall composite score of 36,” said Seven Hills Assistant Head of School Susan Marrs.
Yang said early preparation was instrumental in his success. “I prepared for the ACT this summer so I wasn’t surprised or stressed out by anything on the day of the test, but like with any standardized test, luck plays a part in getting a perfect score,” said Yang. “I would encourage others to take practice ACT tests, get a good night’s sleep and not worry about the score. It can help keep you relaxed.”
In addition to Yang’s academic accomplishments, he also plays on Seven Hills’ golf team and is a competitive violinist. Yang recently competed in the world-renowned Louis Spohr Competition in Weimar, Germany. Among the many composers Yang played as part of his competition were Bach, Paganini, Mazurka, Mozart, and Franz Waxman’s “Carmen Fantasie,” which Yang competed for and earned the opportunity to play during Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra’s annual side-by-side at Music Hall during the 2018 – 19 school year.
