WILMINGTON — Michael A. Shobe, son of Todd and Brenda Shobe of Wilmington and a junior enrolled at Wilmington Christian Academy, earned the highest possible ACT composite score of 36, according to the school.
Only around two-tenths of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score. In the U.S. high school graduating class of 2018, only 3,741 out of more than 1.9 million graduates who took the ACT earned a top 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.
