Twins Double Up On Perfect ACT Score


While most students were on vacation, two twins and rising sophomores at Louisville, Kentucky’s Sacred Heart Academy got perfect scores on the ACT.

Sophie Rydzewski and her twin sister Nell Rydzewski decided to take the ACT in June.

“For about two weeks, we would take several practice tests, just several sections a day,” Nell said.

When the scores came, Sophie checked hers first.

“I saw a 36,” she said. “I was completely shocked and happy and everything.”

“I was more nervous than ever because I’d have to get at least a 36 to match up with her,” Nell said.

When she opened her email, she had the same result. 

“Then we jumped around the room a bit,” she said. 

ACT officials said about 2 million students took the test last year. Of that, about 2,200 got a perfect score. That puts the girls in the 99.9 percentile.
