A five-year-old boy has become the youngest person ever to pass Microsoft’s Certified Professional exam. Ayan Qureshi, from Coventry in the UK, has been using computers since he was three years old, under the guidance of his father, Asim. Ayan has a home computer lab, in which he has constructed his own network.
The invigilators worried that Ayan was too young to sit the exam, but Mr. Qureshi assured them that his son could cope. “There were multiple choice questions, drag and drop questions, hotspot questions and scenario-based questions,” Ayan said of the test.
Mamoona, Ayan’s mother, said of her son’s accomplishment, “I’m very happy and very proud, I don’t want to see him set a world record every day. But I want him to do his best whatever he does in his life.”
Ayan’s ambition is to set-up a UK equivalent to California’s Silicon Valley. He wants it to be named E-Valley.
