Maths whiz (14) set for Cambridge

A young maths prodigy who broke records with his GCSE results is set to achieve a new academic landmark.

Arran Fernandez has been offered a place at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, aged just 14.

According to his father Dr Neil Fernandez, it will make him the youngest Cambridge undergraduate since William Pitt the Younger went to the university at the same age in 1773.

The conditional offer was made after Arran, from Surrey, passed exams set by the university last summer.
