Ayan Qureshi who is the youngest Microsoft Certified Professional after taking the exam age five at Birmingham City University.  A gifted young boy from Coventry has become a qualified computer specialist - at the age of six.  See NTI story NTICOMPUTER.  Ayan Qureshi, who lives in Walsgrave, has become the worldís youngest Microsoft Certified Professional.  The Clifford Bridge Primary School pupil was just five years and 11 months when he passed the exam last month - but heís now turned six.  The test is normally taken just before or after university by young adults aiming to be information technology technicians.  When Ayan and his dad Asim arrived at Birmingham City University invigilators were shocked to see such a small candidate. They said he couldnít take the exam.  But a phone call to Microsoft put problems right and Ayan took his place at a computer alongside the other adult candidates.  He finished the online exam before the allowed time of two hours was up and was delighted to hear he had passed.  The certificate, which he keeps in his bedroom, shows he can use operating systems created by USA computing giant Microsoft.

Think you’re good with computers? Think again.

Six-year-old Ayan Qureshi is the youngest computer specialist in the world, having passed the Microsoft Certified Professional exam when he was just five.

According to his IT consultant father Asim, Ayan was introduced to computers when he was three and would spend hours each day playing with old hard drives and motherboards. Hardly the toys of the average toddler.

But Ayan, now six, has progressed at a staggering rate since his introduction to the world of computers and he has become the youngest specialist in the world after passing the Microsoft Certified Professional test.
