World’s Youngest MCP is 8 Years Old
My niece became a Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) in the final year of her high school and just before she started college……I thought that was impressive (well, compared to me anyway). Then I read about the 9-year old Pakistani girl that passed her MCP exam at half her age. Her story appeared in the Micronews. Now an 8-year old girl from India has become the youngest MCP ever. What I want to know is what’s next. Who’s going to break her record? A 5 year old? Before you know we will have 7 year old surgeons. OK, that’s not a joke. That’s something that has already happened (see list of childhood prodigies below).
According to news stories, M. Lavinashree passed her exam with flying colors. The kid has a photographic memory so apparently she didn’t have much trouble passing her exam. Now she is going for her MCSE.
