CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KDKZ-TV) A Missouri student has pulled off a rare feat — a perfect 36 on his ACT exam.

Cape Girardeau Central senior Michael Hwang received a 36 on every section of his ACT, and he took the test only once.

About one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a perfect score.

Hwang’s success on the test was no surprise. He has a successful YouTube channel and is already studying at Southeast Missouri State University.

Hwang’s father is an assistant professor at Southeast. He says he studies about two hours a day.

He has competed at national-level mathematics contests, and he teaches. His high school guidance counselor, Nita DuBose, says Hwang has a gift for breaking down tough material.
