18-year-old British Indian hailed as brainiest student in Britain
Saturday August 23, 2014 7:25 PM, IANS

An 18-year-old British Indian boy has become Britain's brightest student after getting perfect fives in all major subjects with 100 percent score, a media report said.

Asanish Kalyanasundaram, who hails from Lancahsire in northwest England, got the highest possible grades in maths, physics, chemistry, biology and critical thinking, as required at A-Levels in Britain, the Daily Mail reported Tuesday.

Kalyanasundaram, an aspiring surgeon, will be going to Cambridge University to study medicine in October.

A spokesman for Bacup and Rawtenstall Grammar School said the teenager was one of the brightest pupils they have taught.

Asanish received an A* grade in an Extended Project Qualification, following a 100-hour research topic and presentation after attending a summer school run by the Nuffield Foundation, where he was able to work at the cutting edge of medical research.

The talented student recently won the Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Award and will receive the award from Queen Elizabeth II's husband Prince Philip at St. James Palace in London in November.

He has also been invited by Lancashire County Council to attend a reception for Gold Award winners.
