A 15-year-old mathematics prodigy is set to become the youngest undergraduate at the University of Cambridge since 1773.

(Arran Fernandez was home-educated in Surrey, and now he’s going to start studying at Cambridge at the tender age of just 15. Cambridge has not accepted anyone his age since the 14-year-old William Pitt the Younger was offered a place in 1773. So, 15 years old and home-schooled – good luck young man, be nice to him all you Cambridge dons and no ragging!)
