A 12-year-old student passed his A level computing exam after just nine months, sparking celebrations at Ryde College, Watford, Hertfordshire, this week.
Sameer Sanghvi from Finchley, who achieved a grade C, was the youngest of 43 A level students at the college to pass the exam. Last year he also passed his IT GCSE.
Among the other pupils who passed were Mitesh Vora, 13, and Hadley Parrie,14, who was the youngest student to get a grade A.
"I'm very pleased," said Sameer. "It was quite hard but I enjoy computers."
