The Urdu, English and Punjabi speaking wiz-kid is due to win another place – in the Guinness Book of Records. His Cambridge dream came true four months ago when he embarked on a computer science degree course at Trinity Hall. Ali also achieved a top score in the U.S. admissions test and was accepted by most Ivy League institutions, including Harvard and Yale.

When he filled out his university application forms at home in Rawalpindi there was barely enough space to list his qualifications. Ali finished all the exams within 12 months at Rawalpindi’s Roots College International. His entry was organized through accredited boards Ed-Excel and Cambridge International Examinations.

Apart from core science subjects he is almost entirely self taught. He studied for up to 12 hours a day, using energy drinks to help concentrate. He said: ‘Then one day it all clicked. I needed to prove to myself, and to others, that I could do it.’
