LANSING | Andrew Clark, a senior at Illiana Christian High School, earned a top composite score of 36 on a recent ACT test, according to a news release.
Clark is the son of Jim and Lori Clark, of Hammond.
On average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn the top score nationally. Among test takers in the graduating class of 2013, only 1,162 of more than 1.8 million students earned the composite score of 36.
The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1 to 36 and a student's composite score is the average of the four test scores. An additional writing test is optional and is not included in the ACT composite score.
