A Middletown High School sophomore recently earned a perfect score on his Advanced Placement calculus test, one of 17 such scores in the world.
Kundan Chintamaneni received a score of five, equivalent to an “A” grade in a corresponding college-level course, on a Calculus BC exam as a freshman in the spring of 2012, according to Frederick County Public Schools.
Chintamaneni earned all 108 points on the test, answering every multiple-choice question correctly and getting full credit on each of the essays.
More than 94,000 students took the AP Calculus BC exam in 2012, with Chintamaneni one of 17 to get a perfect score.
Advanced Placement tests are written by college professors and generally encompass a year’s worth of college-level knowledge and skills.
