An 11-year-old Indian-American girl has been judged as one of the brightest students in the world. Natasha Peri, a grade 8th student is declared as the brightest student by a top US university for her exceptional performance in the SAT and ACT standardized tests.
The two standardized tests which are used by many colleges for determining whether to accept a student for admission are Scholastic Assessment Test and American College Testing. In some cases, companies and non-profits also use these scores to award merit-based scholarships. Peri, a student at Thelma L Sandmeier Elementary School in New Jersey, has been honored for her exceptional performance in standardized tests or similar assessments is taken as part of the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth Talent Search.

Her results in the verbal and quantitative sections leveled with the 90th percentile of advanced Grade 8 performance. She made the cut for Johns Hopkins CTY “High Honors Awards”.
