London, March 28 (ANI): A seven-year-old boy in the UK is set to claim a place in the record books after passing A-level maths with an A grade.
Whizkid Yasha Ayari Asley, from Leicester, became the youngest person in the world to crack the A-level Core 1 maths exam, a test usually taken by students 11 years his senior.
"When I looked at the paper, I thought it was going to be easy peasy. There was one question where I thought, 'how am I going to do this?' before I got the answer. The rest were okay," the News of the World quoted him as saying.
His dad Moussa, 47, said: "He was delighted but it was nothing compared to how excited I was. It's a wonderful achievement. I am so proud of him."
Yasha has gone on to inspire hopes he may even pass a university degree before he turns ten.
Moussa said: "Yasha is gifted. He started reading himself very young and also picked up English, French, Arabic and Farsi at an early stage." (ANI)
