-- London, UK: Seven-year-old maths prodigy Marcus Ikpase, sat his GCSEs in Mathematics, after participating in a mentoring programme of the Excellence in Education Programme (www.ExcellenceinEducation.org.uk)
in London. Marcus is one of the youngest students to take the exam this year. London-born Marcus is in year 3 at a state school. (In previous years, Twins Peter and Paula Imafidon who are students of EIE Programme set new world record in Mathematics.)
Chris Imafidon, a parent and board member of EIE Programme reiterated his previous assertion that "every child is a genius if given the appropriate tools, techniques and technology."
Mr Imafidon first expressed such views when his eldest daughter, Anne-Marie Imafidon won a place to study at the University of Oxford at the age of 15. She went on to become the youngest Fortune 500 manager. Dr Chris Imafidon is available to share the secrets of EIE/GCSE success, and for interviews and more comments.
