He may be younger than their children but one of Britain’s brainiest children has been hired by a university to  help adults with their sums.

Yasha Asley, 14, is employed by the University of Leicester – where he is also a degree student – to run tutorials.

He became the youngest ever student at the University and is now the youngest ever employee.

 

Yasha was interviewed and offered the paid job when he was just 13–years old – beating adult applicants.

Admin staff had to apply to Leicester city council for special permission to employ him because he was so young.

The weekly tutorials Yasha runs are for adult students who need help and support solving problems following lectures.

Proud Yasha said: ‘I am having the best years of my life. I love going to university and I love my new job helping other students.

‘No more school uniform for me thank you very much.’

Yasha, who has been dubbed a ‘human calculator’, is now in his final year and plans to start a Phd when he finishes his course.

 

The child genius attended a state primary school before winning his place to study degree level maths at just 12 years old in 2014.

He was the first child in the world to achieve an A grade in maths A Level scoring 100 per cent and 99 per cent in two of the six papers when he was just 8 years old.

He passed more A levels in maths and statistics aged 9 and 10.

After finishing year 6 at primary he went straight to University.

Of his achievements, Yasha said: ‘I love maths because it is an exact science. It is the only science where you can prove what you say is correct.

‘It is so easy and an enjoyable subject to study.’
