Ten-year-old Shayan Ahmed, who passed his AS level in computing yesterday, hopes to pursue a career in IT. In a podcast interview with Computer Weekly, Ahmed spoke of his desire to become a web designer.

Shayan, from Walsall in the West Midlands, is already building his own website, which will allow him to write a blog for his family.

"I am really happy. Really glad. For me that's the best result," he said after receiving his AS level results yesterday.

Shayan spent every Saturday for a year studying at Ryde Teaching Services in Bushey, Hertfordshire, to gain his AS level. He was previously awarded a GCSE grade B in Information and Communication Technologies at the age of seven.

Shayan plans to celebrate today with his family and friends by going bowling. Shayan developed an interest in computers at the age of two when his grandfather bought him an Apple Mac.

His friends think his success at AS level is "quite cool", he said.
