acttests(KTVI) – Two students from the Lindbergh School District have done something only few before them have done:  they got a perfect score on their ACT tests.

Senior Ben Ledeaux and freshman Rounak Bera both earned the highest possible score on the test, joining less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT nationwide.

The Lindbergh School District says both students are in Lindbergh’s PEGS program, Program for Exceptionally Gifted Students.

Ben, 16, was hoping for a 35 but days he wasn’t sure he’d get it.  “I was surprised,” he said.

Rounak, a freshman, said he only took the test for practice, but he does plan to take it again when he’s older.
