PUNJAB: Math is a difficult subject often shunned by children, but a 13 year old boy from Punjab, Moosa Feroz surpassed 1.5 million children from across the globe and came first in the Online World Mathematics Competition held in Australia.

Moosa took the 50-minute online exam, scoring 4405 points, becoming the math champion of the world.

“I will participate every year and will try to win a position again. Now I have become an ambassador of Pakistan and will play my part in spreading more awareness about this competition.” Said Moosa.

Parents and teachers were proud when Moosa, a student of the Beaconhouse School System won the gold medal, which was awarded by the governor of New South Wales, Marie Bashir.
