A student of the Nigerian Turkish International College (NTIC) has scored 100 per cent in the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT).
The student, Master Ebubechi Ezenwanne, got a score of 800 both in Mathematics and Physics in the SAT II examination.
Spokesperson for First Surat Group, owner of NTIC, Mr. Cemal Yigit, said Ebubechi demonstrated an uncommon quintessential academic excellence.
The SAT is one indicator of how ready a student is to handle college-level work. The test measures what one learned in high, and how well one can apply that knowledge.
The SAT II, formerly known as the College Board Achievement Tests, is intended to measure a student’s knowledge of a particular subject.
Besides, the examination tests scores present a more personalized portfolio that illustrates how well one would fit at a particular school. Most colleges use SAT II scores for admission purposes, programme placement and counseling.

In the competition, Yusuf Atolagbe won gold medal in mathematics senior category while Sadiq Sani Danbatta won a gold medal in Physics.
