Student Gets Perfect Score on AP Exam - 1 of 2 in World!

Fox Chapel Area High School junior Rajeev Godse received a perfect score on the Advanced Placement (AP) Statistics Exam. Rajeev took the assessment in May of 2018 and was one of only two students from around the world to receive a perfect score! Globally, a total of 222,501 students took the exam.

According to a March 2019 letter to Rajeev from the College Board’s Senior Vice President, AP and Instruction, Trevor Packer, Rajeev’s achievement, “was so superior that it falls into a very select category… We applaud your hard work, diligence, and enthusiasm…”

Fox Chapel Area High School math teacher Antoinette Payner, who described Rajeev as a top student in her AP Statistics class, said she is proud of his “incredible” accomplishment.

“Rajeev is an incredibly intelligent and talented young man. Not surprisingly, he picked up the material quickly, was helpful to his peers, and has a natural curiosity for learning,” Mrs. Payner said. “I am thrilled this amazing feat happened to such a nice student.”

Advanced Placement Exams are scored on a scale of 1 to 5, where 5 is equivalent to an A in the corresponding college course. Rajeev not only received the top score of 5, but he was one of only two students (amounting to 0.001 of 2018 AP Statistics Exam takers from around the world) to earn every point possible on the difficult assessment.
