Avon Grove student gets perfect score on the SAT

When Avon Grove High School (AGHS) student Aaditya Joshi opened his results from the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) that he took in October, he learned that he achieved something most students only dream of—a perfect score of 1600 on the SAT.

“I was really excited, and it showed that all of the hard work that I had put in over the years had paid off,” the high school junior said.

The SAT is offered several times throughout the year and high school students often take the exam several times in an effort to reach the best possible score to include on their college applications. For Joshi, a perfect score marked the completion of that goal. 

“I’m really happy that I don’t have to take the SAT again,” he said with a laugh.

This was the third time Joshi took the exam and the achievement did not come easily. With two tests under his belt, Joshi knew he had to focus on reading and writing. He had already achieved a perfect score of 800 in the math portion on a previous test and went into this exam feeling confident.

“It’s completely different than a regular test at school, but I was relaxed during the entire exam,” Joshi said. 

It comes as no surprise that Joshi maintained a calm demeanor while taking the test. He balances cabinet roles in four clubs at the high school, Chess Club, Math Club, UNICEF and Model UN, while also sustaining a high level of academic performance. The junior is already thinking about what he would like to study after high school. 

“I’d like to study math or physics,” Joshi said. “I’m really interested in those fields.”

With a remarkable SAT score and an impressive resume of both academic and extracurricular accomplishments, Joshi will undoubtably excel in any path he chooses.
