Indian student in UAE gets perfect SAT score

Dubai: A 15-year-old Indian student here has scored a perfect 2400/2400 in the coveted Scholastic Aptitude Test exams held on November 7, a media report said on Monday.

Sanchit Kapoor, who has represented the UAE at the World Youth Scrabble Championships (WYSC) for the last four years, is among the top 0.5 percent out of the 1.8 million students who appeared for the college board exam, the Gulf News reported.

The SAT score is a qualifying prerequisite for admission into undergraduate degree courses in US universities.

The student dreams of studying software programming and computer science engineering at Stanford. “I knew I had done well, but never expected this score. It was a surprise,a¿ Gulf News quoted Kapoor as saying.

A Class 11 student at GEMS Modern Academy student in Dubai, he topped his school as well as throughout the UAE in his Class 10 board examination.

“Annually, only 400 students worldwide (from a 1.8 million who appear for SAT) achieve a perfect score. Of the 75 per cent perfect score applications to Harvard University, for example, only 10-15 per cent make it said Peter Davos, a Dubai-based independent educational consultant for US universities.

He said a perfect SAT score has brought Kapoor closer to his objective of gaining admission in a top US university.
