ISLAMABAD - Shahzaib Ali Abbasi 18 has been declared top in the world for mathematics in the Cambridge O level examinations held by the University of Cambridge UK.
He has also achieved regional distinction in O Level in computer studies. His latest achievement is getting the coveted mention in the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) 2013 held in Colombia South America and a mention in the Asia Pacific Mathematics Olympiad among other accolades, The Technology Times reported. Shahzaib is studying for his A levels final from FFC Grammar School Mirpur Mathelo.
Shahzaib is not a bookworm. In addition to his studies he makes time for sports. But when it comes to mathematics he is crazy about it so much so that while travelling he keeps a diary and pen ready and keeps solving mathematical problems said Zulfiqar the father of Ali.
Ali said that he has received scholarship offers from King's College London Bath University UK and the University of Hong Kong but he dreams of a bachelor's degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in USA. It was a moment of pride for us when he was honoured in the mathematics Olympiad in Colombo and was handed the Pakistani flag said Mohammad Usman who teaches mathematics at Shahzaib's school.
