Syosset Senior in Select Company With Perfect AP Exam Score
Syosset High School senior Wanlin Li continues to represent Syosset well. Wanlin was recently praised by the College Board for her superior score on last May’s AP Computer Science A Exam. She not only received a top score of 5 but also was one of only 112 students in the world to earn every point possible, receiving the maximum score on every portion of the exam. More than 60,519 students around the world took the AP Computer Science A Exam last year.
If this weren’t enough to be proud of, once again Wanlin will represent the United States at the European Girl’s Mathematical Olympiad this April in Italy. Last year she also represented the U.S. on a four-member European Girl’s Mathematical Olympiad team in Switzerland. Along with taking top honors last year, Wanlin and her three teammates were each awarded a gold medal for their individual performances on this challenging mathematics exam.
As a sophomore Wanlin tied for the fourth-highest score in the country, qualifying her for the United States of America Junior Mathematical Olympiad exam. She was one of just 50 students nationwide invited to the Mathematical Olympiad Summer Program. She is also a past runner up at the New York State Mathematics League competition.
Along with computer programming, Wanlin said she enjoys the thinking required in math and the ability to solve different problems. Wanlin is congratulated here by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Thomas Rogers, her AP Computer Science teacher Christine Owens, Syosset Math Coordinator John Genova and Syosset High School Principal Dr. Giovanni Durante.
