Boy, 9, aces international equivalent of O-level maths

"HE MAY be only nine, but Ezra Koh has already bagged an A grade in the international equivalent of the O-level maths exam....
He is home-schooled, and his parents said he would not have developed at such a pace otherwise. 'Home-schooling is not for every family, but it is good for my children,'...
The three boys follow a daily timetable which includes English, maths, science, Chinese, history and enrichment activities such as mental arithmetic lessons under the close watch of their mother, a former maths teacher at Hwa Chong Institution...."

Steady lah...

Good work by the boy Ezra.

I remembered several boys aged b/w 10 to 12 also scoring distinctions in O level and A levels as well. One of them also home schooled.

On the topic of this 9 yr old, I am a bit disgusted by the exploitation of this sms I just received

HOT NEWS! My 9yr old boy scored A in Cambridge exam ( 21/3 Straits Times pg B2 )

In the report, the parent did say "every child can be gifted". Don't tell me it's really the boy's parent promoting the workshop?
This very "in your face" advertising I don't like leh. :roll:
