Hong Kong's youngest ever university student started his math course on Sep. 4. He said he is already bored with the "very easy" class.

The nine-year-old math genius got two grade As and a B in his A-levels in England. The A-levels are normally taken by 18-year-olds.

March Boedihardjo told reporters at Hong Kong Baptist University he was excited about starting school, but the classes were not hard.

"I've learned it a year or two years ago," Boedihardjo said as reporters asked him questions and cameras flashed around him.

The boy appeared impatient with the large number of questions from reporters and kept asking his father when they could leave.

Boedihardjo did not think much of his classmates, either.

"They made no response (in classes). They just listened in the class and didn't interact with each other," he said.

The boy said that his old school friends "wanted to play," unlike the university students.(AFP)

香港有史以來最年輕的大學新鮮人在九月四日入學就讀數學系。他表示,課程對他來說有點「太淺顯」了。

這個九歲數學神童在英國高級會考中,拿到兩科A及一科B。高級會考的應試者通常是十八歲的青年。

沈詩鈞在香港浸會大學對記者說,他很興奮開學了,但是課程卻過於容易。

「這個我一兩年前就已經學過了。」沈詩鈞在記者採訪時回答,身邊鎂光燈則閃個不停。

面對記者的追訪,沈詩鈞顯得不耐煩,並一直問他父親他們何時可以離開。

沈詩鈞也不太欣賞他的新同學。

「他們(在課堂上)都沒什麼反應,他們只是坐著聽課,不會和其他人互動,」他說。

沈詩鈞說,他之前學校的同學都「好玩」,跟現在的同學不太一樣。
