A five-year-old kid has become the youngest qualified computer specialist after he passed the Microsoft Certified Professional exam which is a vital qualification for IT experts.

Ayan Qureshi broke the previous record of six and a half by passing the exam at the age of five years and 11 months, reported The Mirror.

The school kid from Coventry almost missed out on the chance to write the test after shocked invigilators thought he was too young to take the exam that is meant for adults after they graduate from university.

Officials from Birmingham University called Microsoft”s American headquarters to check if he was allowed to write the exam. The five-year-old completed the test well within the time limit of two hours.
