A 15-year-old has graduated from the University of Leicester with a first-class degree in Mathematics.
Yasha Asley started university when he was 12-years-old and will now go on to study for a PhD in the Department of Mathematics.
Right from my primary school days I wanted to start my university education early. I love absolutely everything about mathematics and I would like to continue studying.
Yasha added he would like to become a research mathematician, so he can continue to 'enjoy' mathematics.
His father, Moussa, who accompanied his son for the ceremony, said:
I am so proud of him - I have waited years for this day. I always knew he could do it.
Professor Jeremy Levesley, who taught Yasha, said:
It has been a great pleasure to work with Yasha over the last three years. He has integrated really well with the other students, and if I had not known he was younger I would not have guessed.
