Too Much Too Soon?

Here is an article on the BBC website about an 8 year old boy who got a grade A at maths A-level, the youngest person to do so.

Well done, very clever.

If you keep reading however you will see the following line :

His ambition is to work in the City as an actuary specialising in pensions and insurance.

What?

He's 8. When you are 8 you want to be either a spaceman, a racing driver or a train driver, not working in the city specialising in pensions and insurance!

Hands up if you think his parents have been feeding him lines. :-)

Hands up if you think his dad works in the city as an actuary specialising in pensions and insurance (whatever the cock that is)!

I wanted to be a ballerina - but by 9 I wanted to be a brain surgeon. Thank God I never made it - can you imagine?
