8 Year Olds Should Not Want To Become Actuaries

There is something seriously wrong with the world when an eight year old, be he a prodigy, wants to become an actuary.

From the BBC:

A boy from Hampshire is thought be the youngest person to pass maths A-level with an A grade. Zohaib Ahmed from Chandler's Ford sat the A-level exam when he was eight. He was nine when the result came through.

Zohaib's 11-year-old brother Wajih, scored 96% in his further maths A-level examination.

His ambition is to work in the City as an actuary specialising in pensions and insurance.

Haha, that's not him. That's his South Asian heritage talking! :P When his papa is not around to play puppet master Mr. Zohaib probably want's to set up his own rock band.

An actuary? Very impressive. Though it's quite depressing to think that an 8 year old kid has better grades than I have.
