Dario Trinchero, a matriculant at Somerset College in Western Cape, is the first South African to be named top mathematics student in the world after achieving the highest marks possible in the notoriously difficult International Cambridge University advanced subsidiary examinations in April 2016.
Not only did he come first in two of his maths exams, and first for South African students for two chemistry papers and a practical.
He scored 100% in all five exams.
He has already started applying to universities around the globe to study theoretical physics next year.
