Maths boff, 13, earns degree
A BOY has earned a first-class degree in maths at the age of just 13.
Wang Pok Lo studied in his free time for the Open University course.
He is completing a parttime Master’s in statistics with medical applications at Sheffield University, fitting it in around his school work.
The pupil, who attends school in South Queensferry near Edinburgh, moved to Britain from Hong Kong with his family in 2006.
He said: “I do enjoy doing maths, but it is getting very challenging. It has started to get a lot more difficult, as it has become more about concepts, which are a lot more abstract and it’s mostly logic and reasoning.”
His teacher, Cara Prot, said: “His natural flair for maths is inspiring and we have thoroughly enjoyed supporting him throughout his studies.” – Daily Mail
