HOUSTON, TX (August 19, 2016) Cody Meng, a rising senior at the Kinkaid School, has joined the very best test-takers in the world, and an increasingly impressive number of Testmasters alumni, achieving a perfect score on the December 2015 administration of the SAT. Meng’s score places him in the top 1% of test-takers. He credits his success in part to his time as a Testmasters student, having twice completed a full length Testmasters SAT course, once as a 6th grader and once again before 11th grade.
Meng says, “Testmasters was essential to my perfect score. The classes gave me the tops and strategies to outsmart the test, and the Exam Club gave me the practice necessary to hone my test-taking skills. The class was especially helpful for writing section, and without it, I doubt I would have gotten a 10 (out of 12) on my essay.”
Outside of his prodigious test-taking skills, Meng plays percussion in the Kinkaid School band and is Vice-President of his school’s esport club, which he co-founded. Meng also volunteers regularly with the Houston SPCA, where he works in the Cattery, which he finds “immensely satisfying.”
Although he is unsure of which colleges he will target for admission next year, he does hope to one day pursue a career in academia. “I love all school subjects, and having to choose one to major in feels like picking a favorite limb before chopping the rest off. Anything to do with Chemistry, Physics, Economics, Political Science, Mathematics, and History are all options.” His love of learning is evident; as he puts it, “I really don’t want to give up learning or teaching any subjects, and if it were possible to teach everything, then that’s what I would do.”
In recognition of his accomplishment, Testmasters will award Meng a $1000 Perfect Score Scholarship.
