Teen gets perfect ACT score and credits a tragedy.

Austin Brotman, a California high school junior, has done something that’s nearly impossible; he got a perfect score on the American College Test (ACT) entrance exam. And he did it just a year-and-a-half after an accident left him paralyzed.

There were over two million students who took the ACT last year and only .1% got every single question right according to a spokesperson for the ACT Test. So the fact that Brotman did it so soon after having to learn how to hold a pen again and how to get around in his new condition is even more impressive.

“Everything was changing so quickly and I didn’t know what to make of it,” the 16-year-old explains. “School had always been really important to me, I had always been a straight-A student so studying gave me something to focus on and work towards.” And all his hard work is really paying off!
