Kevin Xu is the latest Test Masters student to score a perfect 2400 on the SAT. Xu had previously taken the SAT, but knew it was in his power to achieve a perfect score. Kevin seeks to create a “bigger, brighter future” for himself and knew a prep course with Test Masters was the way to go. Test Masters is proud to present him with the $1000 Perfect SAT Score Scholarship.
A junior at James E. Taylor High School, Kevin’s passion is music, reading and as he describes “anything related to computers.” With both brains and talent as an accomplished pianist, he competes in University Scholastic League (UIL) piano competitions. His volunteer efforts include Music RX, a group of musicians who perform at nursing schools and hospitals. In addition, he is an active member of the National Honor Society.
Kevin has big plans for his future and happiness is at the top of his list. His career plans include a potential future in engineering and he is taking time to decide just what field would suit him best. While he hopes to one day pursue a doctorate in engineering, material compensation is not a top priority. He states “I don’t necessarily want to be extremely rich, but rather have a stable, enjoyable job.” Achieving a perfect score on the SAT is just one small step in a very bright future.
Test Masters, Kevin claims, has played a giant part in his huge success. He learned tips and strategies from well-rounded instructors, and made it a point to study hard and attend Exam Club weekly for over 3 months. The lessons learned at Test Masters are invaluable to him.
Kevin agreed to sit down with us and answer a few questions about why Test Masters is the way to go when it comes to thinking about your future. He is a true testament to “practice makes perfect.”
We at Test Masters couldn’t be prouder of Kevin and can’t wait to see what he does in the future.
