School leavers were not the only ones celebrating their GCSE results last month, a 14-year-old boy put forward to take the exams two years early achieved a haul of A grades.
Pawan Matabadul, of Gorseway, Rush Green, was “happy” to achieve four A*’s in chemistry, physics, biology and statistics as well as a B in English literature and Cs in English language and further maths.
He had taken GCSE maths at the age of 13 last year and achieved an A*.
He said: “I am pleased with my results since I did pretty well.”
Pawan, a former pupil at The Albany School, Broadstone Road, Hornchurch, started showing signs of early development when he completed his work quicker than his classmates.
He said: “It all got too easy for me to do and I was very frustrated that I wasn’t given more to do.”
After Pawan achieved his first successful exam result, his parents transferred him to London Brookes College, Hendon, in December where he began to revise for the rest of his GCSEs – he took the exams five months later.

He said: “That is going to be the next step in my education so I’m looking forward to learning as much as I can.”
