The vast majority of us didn’t even have a computer when we were children, but this kid is SIX YEARS OLD and a CERTIFIED MICROSOFT COMPUTER SPECIALIST!

This makes Ayan Qureshi the world’s youngest computer specialist as he took the MCP exam at The University of Birmingham when he was 5 years and 11 months old. This qualification is usually gained by people after they finish their degree! It took him 2 hours a day for 5 months to prepare for this exam.

Ayan’s dad, Asim, is an IT consultant himself and said that his son learned by watching him, often sitting behind him for hours watching ‘like a hawk’. The technician has set up a computer lab for his son in their family home in Coventry.

Obviously, this boy won’t be able to work for another 10 years yet but we can imagine that there will be a ridiculous amount of potential employers after his incredible knowledge and skills. AMAZING!
