A 17 year old Kenyan scholar has been ranked as the best student in Mathematics worldwide.

Manraj Singh emerged top in the subject globally in the International General Certificate of Secondary (IGCSE) examinations of 2016.

Singh who studies at Melvin Jones School in Nakuru town said he was more than happy to not only top in Maths worldwide but also stand out in the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards Kenya.

“I was very happy because now I can get a scholarship to pursue medicine at the university,” said the 12 grader who wants to be a surgeon.

The exams are administered to over 150,000 students across the world with about 156 countries who administer the curriculum.

Singh emerged the best in Computer Science, Accounting, Additional Mathematics and Mathematics in the country.

His school, which is sponsored by the Lions Club, has given him a full scholarship for the next two years.

This despite attempts by other schools to entice him with scholarships but Singh admits he is contented with where he is and has no wish to transfer.

His mum, Ms. Dhilaon Kavita expressed delight in her son’s performance which she was anticipating.

“I knew I would top the world in mathematics so when it happened I was obviously very happy,” she stated.

Kenya bagged 72 awards in the Cambridge International A Level rewards worldwide, with Melvin Jones school scooping ten of them.
