    Britain's Best Students and Educators Celebrated in Parliament


    - House of Lords honour for Students and Scholars.
    Pioneers in education and Britain's best students have been honoured at a ceremony at the House of Lords.


    Lord Ahmed presented a special award to Zulifqar Mansoor Ali who passed a total of 35 A-levels. This is considered a world record as the average student passes only 3 subjects. The best in the GCSE category went to Talal Almas who achieved a staggering 22A*s and 4 As. He also has scored 9 A-levels while only in year 12. Year 9 student Miss Onisa Naing got a total of 14A/A*s.


    The Junior Category winners included: Twins Peter and Paula Imafidon who are the youngest A-Level Maths successes at the age of 7; Laurelle Brant a musician who at the tender age of 8, managed to skip two music grades and is one of the youngest people to ever pass GCSE mathematics (went to secondary school a year early after having multiple offers to start at the age of 9); Sarah Nwisi had multiple offers from top secondary schools to start secondary school a year early; Sofia and Francheska Monforte aged 6 and 8 both junior mathematical champions and two of the youngest to write GSCE mathematics; Zsazsa and Golda Osei -Gyamfi aged 9 and 10 both junior mathematical champions; Twins Zach and Tamara aged 8 were the youngest twins to write GCSE mathematics last year and are also both junior mathematical champions; Zion Udo aged 4 junior reading and comprehension champion.



    All the award recipients were hosted to reception after the formal ceremony and speeches.

    Lord Ahmed also presented Professor Chris Imafidon with Educational innovation award, which was in recognition of his outstanding achievements in education.


    Sir Nazir Ahmed of Edmonton, London received the educator award. He is the brain behind most of the record-breaking successes. Prof Imafidon (chair of the Excellence in Education Programme), just flew into the capital to receive his award, said: “It all seems a bit much for me for only getting some students to realise their potential and understand that 'Everyone is a genius' but I really am so humbled by it alI believe every teacher, parent, school and government must now wake up to the simple notion that the primary purpose of education is the discovery, development and deployment of the talents/gifts of every child. The paradigm for learning has shifted as evidenced by these unparalleled results. Educational re-engineering is now a reality"


    Excellence in Education Programme congratulated all the scholars and students who were celebrated at this event.
