16-year-old with 3 college degrees gets perfect SAT score

Ladies and gentlemen of the world  meet your future boss.

Maadhav Shah is only 16 years old, but he already holds three associate degrees and recently scored a perfect 2400 on the SAT. As the Bobs from "Office Space" would say, this young man has upper management written all over him.

Maadhav recently graduated from American River College (ARC) in Sacramento with degrees in math, physical science, and social science, according to Fox 40.

Maadhav had been taking classes at ARC since he was 10. Fox 40 reports that normally ARC requires students to be at least 16 before beginning classes. It made an exception for Maadhav because he was clearly mature beyond his years.

As for the perfect SAT score, Maadhav told the Tribune that he wasn't really expecting it. "When I saw it (the score), I checked to make sure it was my name and my email, and then I was really happy."

Last year, fewer than 500 students (.03 percent) who took the SAT landed a perfect score, according to the Tribune. Though he was surprised by his perfect results, Maadhav said he studied in the 5 to 6 weeks leading up to the exam.

So, what's next? Despite possessing college degrees, Maadhav is still working on graduating from Granite Bay High School. He'll be a senior this fall. He said he hopes to study engineering at Stanford or Cal Tech.
