A group of brainy youngsters aged eight to 15 took the maths exam after participating in the Excellence in Education programme.

The scheme, which took place at Sarah Bonnell School, aims to enable students of any age or ability to understand GCSE maths in just 21 days.

The youngest pupil to pass the exam was aspiring scientist Israel Adeboga, eight.

He achieved a C grade and said: “I want to achieve GCSEs so I can go to secondary school and to university.”

Nine-year-old Francheska Monforte hasn’t been put off by the hard work, which saw her achieve a D. She said: “My dream is to have an A in every subject especially in science, because when I grow up I want to be a doctor.

“After three days I really started to enjoy maths, now I look forward to taking even harder papers next year.”

Two of the cohort managed to achieve an A grade, including 13-year-old Can Solak.

He said: “The difference between EIE and normal school is that EIE goes into more depth and also explain how to do higher level topics, more than my school does; and there are younger kids doing what seems like difficult sums in small groups in classes, making it a more fun experience.”

The class, which runs on Saturday mornings, is made up of children from schools in deprived areas or who attend poor performing schools.
