One ambition was fixed in Ali Moeen Nawazish’s mind as he made his way through school in Pakistan. He wanted to win a place at Cambridge.Sitting seven A-levels might easily have done the trick, even though he had started to study some of the subjects only three days before the exam.But he was determined to get some good grades. So he sat another three, and three more. Then another nine. Just in case, he took a couple of AS levels along the way.
The remarkable young student, who modestly explains he has ‘quite a thirst for knowledge’, secured 22 A grades, one B and a C.When he filled out his university application forms at home in Rawalpindi there was barely enough space to list his qualifications.His Cambridge dream came true four months ago when he embarked on a computer science degree course at Trinity Hall. Now he is due to win another place – in the Guinness Book of Records.
Pride of Performance
Who could have believed that a young Pakistani boy could do something no one in the World thought of trying … And above all he did it just because he needed to prove to himself, that he could do it
After deciding he had to do something extra-ordinary, Ali burnt midnight oil and studied for up to 12 hours a day admitting that sometimes he had to use energy drinks to stay active and to focus on studies … the result? A world record that is hard to beat for sure!
His meritorious performance was lauded around the globe and he made the cover stories in many reputed national and international newspapers and magazines, including BBC, The Telegraph and The Independent. Mr Yousaf Raza Gillani, Prime Minister of Pakistan personally contacted him on telephone and congratulated him on his success.
