Five Year Old Passes Microsoft Exam
A five year old boy from Coventry has become the youngest computer specialist in the world.
The Microsoft Certified Professional The Microsoft Certified Professional known as Ayan Qureshi has set up his own computer network at home.
Ayan said he found the test quite hard but enjoyable, and would love to one day set up a UK-based tech hub. The test is usually taken by people who want to become IT technicians.
He added: "There were multiple choice questions, drag and drop questions, hotspot questions and scenario-based questions."
Ayan's father Asim said: "The hardest challenge was explaining the language of the test to a five-year-old. But he seemed to pick it up and has a very good memory."
After introducing Ayan to computer's at just three years'old, Asim wanted to teach his son about hard drives and motherboards.
He added: "I found whatever I was telling him, the next day he'd remember everything I said, so I started to feed him more information.
"Too much computing at this age can cause a negative effect, but in Ayan's case he has cached this opportunity."
Little Ayan has his own computer lab at his home in Coventry, which contains a computer network that he built himself.
He spends around 2 hours a day learning about the operating system and how to install programmes.
The family moved from Pakistan to England in 2009.
His mother said: "I'm very happy and very proud, I don't want to see him set a world record every day. But I want him to do his best whatever he does in his life."
