In a statement, the East Side Union High School District reports that Anton Cao was "1 of only 12 students in the world to earn every point possible on the exam. Looking across approximately 4.5 million AP Exams taken by 2.5 million U.S. public high school students in 2015, only 322 students earned every point possible on an AP exam, a rare accomplishment."
