16-year-old boy is celebrating after being accepted to study at one of the world’s most prestigious universities.

.

.

Andrew Ejemai, from Brentwood School in Essex, will become one of the youngest of this year’s intake of students at Cambridge University after achieving ‘A*’ A-Level passes in Additional Further Maths, ‘A’ grades in the new Linear Chemistry and Economics and achieving Grade 1 in STEP II and III, the Cambridge University maths exam, in one academic year.

Back in 2013, the talented student became the youngest person in his school’s history to pass an A-Level exam when he gained an ‘A*’ in his Maths A-Level at the age of just 12.

.

.

Ejemai will now study Maths at Corpus Christi college, a course which attracts more than 1,400 applicants every year.

Speaking to The Voice about the fact that he will be attending one of the world’s prestigious universities two years ahead of his contemporaries, Ejemai said: “I am mostly grateful to God Almighty for helping me to achieve this great feat. .

.

I believe that without hard work, perseverance, parental and school support, this would not have been possible. I am indebted to all at Brentwood School for believing in me, and giving me the opportunity to complete my three A-Level subjects in one year.”

Andrew said he owes his love of numbers to his mum Ronke. Ejemai’s father, Sonny, hopes his son’s example will encourage other young black pupils to excel academically. Crdt: VoiceOnline
