Florida teenager gets perfect SAT score, says he ‘freaked out’
Teen shocked to get perfect 1600 score on SAT
Florida high school junior Jacob Harrison exceeds his goal of a score of 1,550 on the SAT by acing the test with a perfect score of 1,600.
A Florida teenager's goal to do well on the SAT ended up paying off — and then some — when he discovered he'd earned a perfect score of 1,600 on the test.
Jacob Harrison, a junior at Largo High School in Largo, Fla., had set a goal to score 1,550 when he first took the SAT back in December. When he checked back in to find out his score, however, the 17-year-old said he got quite a surprise.
"I was shocked, I showed my friend because I was walking to school," he told FOX13 on Tuesday. "We both kind of freaked out for a second and then ran to class."

Harrison said he studied for the SAT and took practice tests to prepare. But between his other extracurricular activities, the teen wasn't expecting a perfect score.
