The young genius’s I.I. is 145. His favorite subject is mathematics, and the child dreams of becoming a cardiac surgeon. He also wants to find the means to prolong people’s lives.
The prodigy from the Netherlands, 9-year-old Laurent Simons, will soon receive a diploma from the Technical University of Eindhoven, Spiegel writes.
The boy entered the Department of Electrical Engineering at a prestigious institution a year ago.
Laurent received his high school diploma at the age of eight. He mastered the six-year school curriculum of middle and high school in just a year and a half.
After the holidays, the child became a university student. Here he is also ahead of his classmates, who are much older than him.
The young genius’s I.I. is 145 (with an average intelligence ratio of 100). Laurent has a photographic memory. The boy admits that his favorite subject is mathematics.
The prodigy wants to become a heart surgeon. His dream is to invent the means to prolong human life. While still a schoolboy, Laurent took a medical course at the University of Amsterdam
Note that Laurent Simons can break the “record” of American Michael Carney, who is the youngest holder of a diploma of higher education. Carney graduated from the University of Alabama at the age of 10.
