Grade 11 Indian Student In UAE Makes History By Scoring Perfect Score Of 1600 In SAT

An Indian-origin student in Dubai has achieved a rare accomplishment. The 16-year-old has made history by getting the perfect score of 1600 in the SAT standardised test. SAT is organised for university admissions in the US.

Ahaan Shetty, who is a Grade 11 student at GEMS Modern Academy in Dubai, got all his 154 questions correct. The kid got the highest possible score of 1600 (800 in maths; 800 in reading/writing) in SAT in December 2021.

The results of the tests were announced last week.

Shetty is from Mumbai city in India. He had previously got a near-perfect score of 1520.

“I felt I could do better so I practised some more and took the SAT again. I thought I did better this time but I was pleasantly surprised to get a perfect score,” said Shetty.

He wants to study physics, which is his favourite subject, at a leading university in the US after graduating high school next year.

He also loves to play the piano, sprint in track-and-field and is a big fan of robotics. Shetty did not study the day before his SAT and feels that there is no shortcut for doing well in SAT – or any other exam.
