Local Student Scores Perfect 2400 on SAT

Landing a decent SAT number for college admissions is hard enough for most students, but one Northern California teen has shattered the norm by getting a perfect score.

Diana Li scored a perfect 2400 on the test, including a perfect 800 on both the chemistry and math SAT 2 exams, according to Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions.

Her perfect score is achieved by less than 0.02 percent of about 1.5 million students across the country, spokesman Russell Schaffer said.

Li, a junior who attends Mira Loma High School in Sacramento, said she wants to be a U.S. Supreme Court justice someday and hopes to attend an Ivy League school.

She is fluent in Chinese and is currently learning Spanish, Schaffer said.

As for other high school students studying for the exam, Li said it's not a good idea to "cram" the night before the test.
