Seven-year-old twins set up three Maths records

London, Jan 16 (ANI): A pair of seven-year-old twins has entered record books by becoming the youngest ever children to pass an A-level maths exam.

Paula and Peter Imafidon have broken three records with the youngest candidates ever to pass an A-level maths paper, the youngest ever school pupils to pass the A-level maths paper as previous title holders have been home schooled and the youngest ever twins to achieve this level in mathematics anywhere in the world.

The brainy twins achieved a Grade D in AS-level maths alongside candidates more than twice their age.

“The children enjoy learning and see maths and science as a challenge and game rather than hard work,” Sky News quoted a spokesman for the Imafidon family, Kizzi Nkwocha, as saying.

The twins are from a gifted family of five siblings who are all high academic achievers.

And when they grow up, Paul wants to become a “successful” prime minister, and Paula wants to be a maths teacher. (ANI)
