An 11-year-old girl has won a place in the record books after passing A-level computing.

Ann-marie Imafidon, the youngest girl ever to have passed the examination, achieved a grade E after studying only two hours a week for four months.

The London school-girl, who made waves by passing her IT GCSE at the age of 10, said she hoped her achievements would inspire other young students.

Ann-marie claims to be proficient in C++, and has written programs in Cobol, Visual Basic, Java and a variety of other computer languages. She has designed Web sites for her school and local church and taught Web programming at the age of 9 in the US.
