Boy, 8, gets A grade in maths A-Level!

Yasha, 8, who's the youngest person to get an A grade in A-Level maths!

If taking Sats worries you then check this - an eight-year-old in Leicester has become the youngest person to get an A grade in A-Level maths!

Yasha has passed all six A-Level maths exams - even scoring full marks in one!

He said: "They were easy and as soon as I looked at the papers, I knew all the answers to the questions."

Yasha goes to school three days a week and gets tutoring at university. He's hoping to get a maths degree in the future - just like his dad!

His dad Moussa is very proud of his son: "Right from the beginning I knew he could do it and he's done it, he's proved me right."

Yasha's school teacher Adam said it was like having a second teacher in the classroom.

"If I gave him a pen I'm sure he would mark people's work for me because he's that talented with maths."
