Willa Chen has a knack for tough tests.

The Detroit News reported Saturday that the 17-year-old senior at southeast Michigan's Canton High School got perfect scores on the ACT — and the SAT — and the PSAT.

ACT Inc. spokeswoman Nancy Owen says it's "quite an accomplishment."

The College Board, made up of 5,000 schools, administers the SAT and PSAT but says it doesn't track statistics on whether anyone has scored perfectly on both of its tests.

Chen plans to attend Princeton University.

The student from the Detroit suburb of Canton Township said she doesn't think she studied a lot but she said she tries to keep learning all the time.

She participates in the Math Olympiad and also finds time to enjoy jazz, tap and ballet dancing.
