Seven-year-olds pass computing GCSE
August 27 2009
Two seven-year-olds have passed a GCSE in computing.
Staff in teaching jobs in Hertfordshire have cause to celebrate, as Tashan Artigoda, who achieved a grade C in his exam, is from the county.
"His school teacher said he was very, very good at computing and he completed the course in nine months, he loved it and he is very good at it," his mother, Renuka Artigoda said.
The second child who passed was Esha Shah, from Harrow, north-west London.
Esha described the course as "quite easy" and she picked up the computing skills from her father, an IT worker.
"Any project she did at school she always wanted to do it on the computer," Esha's mother Sonia said.
This year's GCSE pass rate is the highest ever, it has been reported.
Despite the record results, former inspector of schools Sir Mike Tomlinson told the Daily Mail the exams are "complex and expensive".
