MARION, Ind.– A student at Marion High School received a perfect score on his AP calculus AB test, making him one of only 18 people around the world to do so.

Truman Bennet, a senior, received a letter from the College Board earlier this month informing him of the perfect score.

“As you know, Advanced Placement Exams are scored on a scale of 1 to 5, where 5 is the equivalent to a grade of ‘A’ in the corresponding college course. You not only received the top score of 5, but were one of only 18 students in the world (amounting to just 0.006% of all 2016 AP Calculus AB Exam takers) to earn every point possible on this difficult assessment,” the letter says.

The full letter can be read here.

Marion High School says two seniors and several members of the Class of 2016 who earned honors this year did so for the second year in a row.
