CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY OFFERS 16-YR BRITISH-NIGERIAN MATHS WHIZ-KID ADMISSION




Cambridge University has offered a 16-year-old British-Nigerian, Andrew Ejemai, a chance to study mathematics at Corpus Christi College, UK.
.
.
Ejemai, a graduate of Brentwood School in Essex, the youngest of this year’s intakes, got the opportunity after achieving ‘A*’ A-Level passes in additional further maths, ‘A’ grades in new linear chemistry and economics.
.
.
He also achieved Grade 1 in STEP II and III, the Cambridge University maths exam.
.
.
Ejemai told The Voice Online that he derives satisfaction from solving problems.
.
.
According to the maths genius, his potential was discovered at age four, after writing a complex equation when asked by his teacher to write a simple sum formula.
.
.
“I am mostly grateful to God Almighty for helping me to achieve this great feat,” he said.
.
.
“I believe that without hard work, perseverance, parental and school support, this would not have been possible. I am indebted to all at Brentwood School for believing in me, and giving me the opportunity to complete my three A-Level subjects in one year.
.
.
“I studied past papers and worked extremely hard to gain the necessary exam results. When I was told that I would be going to Cambridge University, I was very happy.
.
.
“My advice to other youngsters is to work hard, persevere and with talent, you can also receive a place at a good university.
.
.
“What I enjoy about maths is the problem-solving aspect of the subject. It always gives me satisfaction.”
.
.
In 2013, Ejemai became the youngest person in his school’s history to pass an A-Level exam when he gained an ‘A*’ in his Maths A-Level at the age of 12.
