    An 11-year-old boy has recently obtained a Bachelor’s degree in physics at the University of Antwerp.

    The Young graduate, Laurent Simons, who hails from Oostende on the Flemish coast, Belgium, has successfully completed a three-year course in one year, whilst also taking master’s courses on the side.

    He also outperformed other students by getting the highest distinction possible.

    “Simons has been studying for his bachelor’s degree in physics since March 2020, and he now graduated with 85%, which is the highest distinction,” said an Antwerp University spokesperson.

     

    “This year, he also took some courses from the master’s programme. After the summer, he will officially start his master’s degree,” the spokesperson added.

    Simons, 11, stated that he had to put all other work on hold to take courses on classical mechanics and quantum physics, as he “wanted to know everything about these subjects right away.”

     

    “Immortality, that is my goal. I want to be able to replace as many body parts as possible with mechanical parts. I have mapped out a path to get there. Quantum physics – the study of the smallest particles – is the first piece of the puzzle,” he said.

     

    “Two things are important in such a study: acquiring knowledge and applying that knowledge. To achieve the second, I want to work with the best professors in the world, look inside their brains and find out how they think,” Simons added.

     

    Simons had already studied at TU Eindhoven when he was nine years old, and would have been the youngest person to ever obtain a diploma in higher education, but, he left due to disagreements with the Dutch university before graduating.

     

    He also previously studied at UGent where he already obtained credits, meaning he could obtain his bachelor’s degree with a shorter programme at Antwerp University.

      the kind of wisdom given to Solomon.. its sad that the Nigerian educational system doesn’t afford young ins the chance to do great things in several fields of study like this.. if not Nigeria should be one of the countries visiting space nah

      The young scientist has immersed from the Antwerp University. In Nigeria, the government will frustrate you to achieve anything in life.

      At age 11, Jamb will disqualify you from taking their entrance examination, and the universities will not even admit you into their system base on the age requirement.
