Yahsa already has an A* in Maths and an A in Pure Maths
While most teenagers are quivering with nerves when it comes to taking their maths A Level, Yasha Asley described it as easy peasy – and he was just seven years-old.
Now the prodigy has gained his third top-grade A level pass at the tender age of ten.
Yasha, whose teacher claims he has ‘a brain like a calculator,’ achieved an A* in Statistics and now hopes to go to university.
He already has an A* in Maths and an A in Pure Maths – both of which he gained at the age of eight.
He’s got the X=Y factor: Yasha, appropriately sitting in front of a picture of Einstein, has achieved another excellent grade (seen here aged eight)
He is the youngest person in the world to have achieved a grade A in Maths – scoring 100 per cent and 99 per cent in two of the six papers two years ago.
Yasha, from Leicester, says he did not suffer from exam nerves as he tackled his Statistics exam paper this year.
He said : ‘I opened it, looked at the first question and just started writing.
‘I didn’t feel nervous. I probably felt better than the other teenagers.’
His father, Moussa Asley, a 49-year-old Iranian, who raised his son single-handedly after his marriage broke up, said : ‘It just confirmed my expectation. I felt very pleased and very proud.
