North Carolina high schoolers are doing better on the SAT exam, though the state's average still lags behind the national average.
The College Board released the results Tuesday, showing North Carolina's average SAT score in 2008 increased. North Carolina's average SAT score was 1,007, and the nation's was 1,017.
"In 1998, it seemed we would never reach the national average. Today, that goal is within sight," State Superintendent June Atkinson said in a press release.
More students in North Carolina took the SAT in 2008 than in 2007.
