SCOTCH PLAINS – Lucy Yoon, a senior at Union Catholic High School who lives in Metuchen, scored a perfect 800 on the math section of her college entrance SAT exam.
Yoon, an international student from Korea who entered Union Catholic during her sophomore year, dedicated most of her SAT preparation time to the writing and verbal sections, but managed to take the highest level math and science classes during high school to ensure her success on the math portion. Yoon noted that completing the AP Calculus AB course during her junior year best refreshed basic formulas and principles, since included in the class was other math course-content, such as geometry, algebra 2, and pre-calculus.
By the end of her senior year, Yoon will also have taken AP Chemistry, AP Environmental Science, AP Statistics, and AP Biology, as well as AP Physics through Virtual High School. All of this vigilant preparation is in hopes of her eventual attainment of a doctoral degree in renewable energy. Her current goal is to be accepted into a university, such as Cornell or Duke, with strong environmental and chemical science programs.
