Doppalapudi Earns 36 on ACT
Laine Williams

Altamont junior Sid Doppalapudi earned a perfect 36 on the ACT, the highest possible composite score.

On average, only one-tenth of one percent of all test takers receive the top score. Among recent U.S. high school graduates just 2,760 out of the more than two million students who took the ACT reached a composite score of 36. The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, each scored on a scale of 1–36. A student's composite score is the average of the four test scores.

During the past six years, 14 Altamont students have earned a 36 on the ACT.

Congratulations, Sid, on this huge accomplishment!
