A 14-year-old boy has become the youngest student to graduate from Texas Christian University in the US.

In an interview, he said: "I’m a normal dude. It is just something I have learned to deal with because, to me I am not a genius. I am a normal 14-year-old person doing college-level stuff."

Well, his modesty can't be faulted but one thing is certain—only a genius of sorts would get a college degree in physics at the age of 14.
