Fox Chapel Area High School junior Rajeev Godse rearned a perfect score on the Advanced Placement (AP) Statistics Exam.

A local student is one of only two across the globe to earn a perfect score on the Advanced Placement (AP) Statistics Exam.

Fox Chapel Area High School junior Rajeev Godse received a top score of 5 — exams are scored on a scale of 1 to 5 — and earned every point possible on the test.

His achievement is “so superior that it falls into a very select category,” said Trevor Packer, the College Board’s senior vice president of AP and instruction.

Godse took the exam in May of 2018, among 222,501 other students from around the world.

“Rajeev is an incredibly intelligent and talented young man,” district math teacher Antoinette Payner said.

“Not surprisingly, he picked up the material quickly, was helpful to his peers and has a natural curiosity for learning.”

Payner described the feat as amazing and said Godse is a top student in her AP Statistics class.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
