An Indian-origin student, who scored a perfect five in his main subjects with 100 per cent marks across the board, is being hailed as the brightest student in Britain.
Asanish Kalyanasundaram achieved the highest possible grades in maths, physics, chemistry, biology and critical thinking as part of the five main subjects required at A Levels in Britain.
The 18-year-old, who simply says he is “delighted” with his score, is now off to Cambridge University in October to study medicine.
He is considering becoming a surgeon but has not decided the branch of medicine he would like to specialise in.
Asanish lives with his mother Sujatha in Burnley, Lancashire, and has also been a keen badminton player as a student of St Joseph’s Park Hill School in the area and Bacup and Rawtenstall Grammar School, according to ‘Burnley Express’.

“Constantly in demand of a fresh challenge beyond his A-Level studies, Asanish has a unique intelligence and has made the most of the opportunities available to him both within and outside of school,” a school spokesperson was quoted as saying by the local newspaper.
Asanish received an A* grade in an Extended Project Qualification, following a 100-hour research topic and presentation after attending a summer school run by the Nuffield Foundation, where he was able to work at the cutting edge of medical research.
The bright student recently won the Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award and in November is off to St James’s Palace in London to receive the award from Queen Elizabeth II’s husband Prince Philip.
He has also been invited by Lancashire County Council to attend a reception for Gold Award winners.
