Your browser does not support this video Ian’s exact path beyond Tuesday remains unclear: The storm, which developed Friday in the central Caribbean Sea, is expected to reach the US later this week, but with models showing a wide spread of possible scenarios, it’s too early to know where the storm will hit, when – and how strong it will be.

A high school student in Indiana is the first person in the world to receive a perfect score on the Advanced Placement (AP) Calculus AB exam.

Felix Zhang, a junior at Penn High School, earned 108 points out of 108 points on the exam he took in the spring, according to a story published Monday by the New York Post. He took the exam as a sophomore.

“I felt pretty confident knowing that I knew what to do on the test, but there was always a chance I would make a small error or something,” Zhang said, the outlet reported. “So I wasn’t really expecting to see a perfect score. And that was pretty surprising to me because I felt like, there’s a lot of other people out there who probably perform very well on this test, and I’m pretty surprised that no one else got a perfect score.”

The College Board administers AP exams and scores students on a scale of one to five, according to the organization’s website.

Approximately 20% of the 270,000 students worldwide who took the May 2022 AP calculus exam earned a score of five, the New York Post reported. This is the largest percentage of students scoring a five on the test since 2016.

“This outstanding accomplishment is likely a direct reflection of the top-quality education being offered at Penn High School,” Trevor Packer, head of the Advanced Placement Program said, according to the New York Post.

“We applaud Felix’s hard work and the AP teacher responsible for engaging students and enabling them to excel in a college-level course,” Packer added.
