Schoolboy earns first class maths degree

Tough sums and equations are no problem for Alex Thorne as he has earned a first-class honours degree in mathematics – aged just 15.

The maths buff from Gwaelod-y-Garth even achieved 100% in two of his final exams and progressed to university after completing A-level maths as a 12-year-old.

Alex, who is a pupil at King’s Monkton School in Cardiff, will combine his GCSEs with a masters degree over the next two years and you can read his A* success story in an interview with Wales Online.
