If you thought the bar was high to get good grades in school, Cedrick Arguetta just raised it way high, like WAY high.
He’s a half Salvadorean, half Filipino 17-year-old from Abraham Lincoln High School in Lincoln Heights who was one of 12 students in the world to get a perfect score on his AP Calculus exam. A PERFECT SCORE.
But his calculus smarts didn’t come overnight. “Leading up to the exam we spent about two or three hours every day after school,” he said. That’s like two to three hours too much for us, the mathematically challenged.
And listen to this, he also got a perfect score in the English and math sections of the ACT, a college entrance exam. With that kind of intelligence, we doubt he’ll have a hard time getting into his prefered college, Caltech or getting his dream job at NASA.
