A 12-year-old boy who got A* in his maths GCSE aged eight, has now become Britain’s youngest university student.

Xavier Gordon-Brown may still be too young to join Facebook, but is already studying for a degree in maths.

He manages to fit his university studies into his free hours between full-time school, practicing the clarinet, piano and violin, learning four languages and playing football with his friends.


When Xavier, from Haywards Heath in Sussex, passed his GCSE in 2009 he was the youngest ever student to gain an A* in maths, and could recite 2,000 digits of Pi.

He is now studying abstract structures, vector calculus and Newtonian mechanics in his spare time, but since he only turned 12 last month he has to be accompanied to his Monday evening lectures by his mother.
Despite being the youngest student by far, his proud mother Erica said he is still top of the class. Erica said: ‘He absolutely loves it.

‘It’s one of those things we thought about for a while, but seeing how much he enjoys it has made it all worthwhile.

Re: Easy as Pi, University at age 12

My thoughts as they came to me:

1) Why must headlines all be terrible puns?

2) Good for him.

3) He must get bullied quite a bit.

4) Who actually pays attention to the age limit on Facebook?

5) I'm sure he had a lot of fun on freshers week.

I doubt college kids would bully a kid that was in their class. It's not like he would be taking these classes with the average college kids either...

The people that would make fun of him aren't taking vector calculus with him.
