PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

It's an impressive accomplishment you don't hear about very often, but a Jesuit High School senior just earned the highest score possible on his SAT.

Sunjay Mouli, 17, said he began studying for the college readiness exam about a month before he took it. He had a feeling he would do well when he took the test last month, but even he was surprised when he got a 2400.

According to the College Board, out of 1.6 million students nationwide who took the SAT this year, just 360 got the highest score possible.

Mouli said the key to his high score was preparation.

"I think the familiarity going into the test is what really brings up your score," he said. "If you know how the questions are formatted, and if you know what type of questions they ask you, and if you practice that before hand, then you'll feel very confident and you'll be a lot better than if you just take it cold."

Mouli said he plans to study biomedical engineering and go onto medical school. His goal is to one day become a Neurosurgeon.
