BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - One Belleville high school student has earned a perfect score of 36 on the college preparatory ACT test.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1osJ9QI ) that 17-year-old A.J. DiGiovanni of Althoff Catholic High School got the perfect score. He says it “was definitely a surprise.” The test measures English, math, reading, science and other skills. DiGiovanni says he took practice tests online and says they “were much more difficult” than the real ACT test.

DiGiovanni will be a senior this coming school year. He’s on the math team, in the science club and is a National Honor Society member. He also is varsity captain of the school’s scholar bowl team. DiGiovanni says he wants to pursue a career in science, technology or math.
