Spring-Ford Area Senior High School is celebrating the fact that one of its students achieved the only perfect score on the Advance Placement (AP) psychology exam in the world when she took the test in spring 2012.
High school senior Amanda Jurewicz took the exam during the 2011-12 school year as a culminating test for the AP psychology course. Advance Placement exams are based on a composite score of one to five, where a five is equivalent to an A in the corresponding college equivalency course. Amanda not only received the top score of five — ranking among 15.5 percent of students to fall within this top score in 2012 — but was the only person in the world to earn every point possible on the test. Amanda answered every multiple choice question correctly and earned full points on each of the essays or problems in the free response section of the exam. Amanda earned 150 out of 150. In total, 220,361 students took the AP psychology exam in 2012.
