Is this statement correct :

The best part of Mr X's life is that he scored 800 in GMAT.

Is he here correct or do I need to use Mr X. IMO he should be okay because meaning seems 100% right.

My grammar skills are no longer great, but I think you would want to say The best part of Mr. X’s life was scoring 800 on the GMAT.

That’s probably a cleaner way to say it. At the same time if you are wondering about whether “he” was a vague pronoun reference in your sentence, it is not but that sentence has other issues as mentioned.

Thx

Thanks bb for the response.
The correct statement from the question is : A little-known fact from Michelangelo’s early years as an artist is that he forged a statue in 1496.
I modified it on my own and I think I did it wrong.

So here he is okay to use?
