Anagh Agarwal from Mumbai scored 1600/1600 in the new pattern of SAT and 36/36 in ACT.
Anagh Agarwal, a 16-year-old student of Dhirubhai Ambani International School, has become the first Indian to score a full 100% in his SAT exams and thus an excess of opportunities waiting for him. He aims to pursue a major in economics from Harvard University.
A good SAT or ACT (American College Testing) score standardized examination for admission to US colleges and this would have been enough to secure admission to the Ivy League institute, but the 16-year-old has gone ahead and secured perfect scores in both the exams.
According to TOI reports, Agarwal scored 1600/1600 in the new pattern of SAT and 36/36 in ACT. Most students take either of the exams. “I took it up as a personal challenge. I had always wanted to appear for SAT, and I started preparation about five months ago. To appear for ACT was a last-minute decision,” said Agarwal, adding that his reading habit helped him in his preparation.
He has his plans all made. “I want to get into investment banking for a short period in the US after completing my studies. Then I intend to return to India and join politics and become the finance minister someday,” said Agarwal.
