Danyal, who’s only 11, will be done with his Mathematics and Further Mathematics A-level (18+) exams in a few weeks. In practice papers he’s been getting As – so fingers crossed.
So this is how he’s got here – and it’s remarkably simple – he tries a past-paper question, checks his answer and then Googles it if he doesn’t understand, often finding the solution on YouTube.
And then he repeats.
No classes, no tutors, no homework, no textbooks.
And yes, he learns new topics in exactly the same way – it’s all there on the internet, after all.
A laptop, some passion and a comfortable sofa is the best way to study mathematics…
