March Tian Boedihardjo (simplified Chinese: 沈诗钧traditional Chinese: 沈詩鈞pinyin: Shěn ShīJūn) is a child prodigy of Indonesian-born Chinese descent. Boedihardjo was born c. 1998 in Hong Kong with family roots in Anxi, Fujian, China. He finished his A-level exams in Britain at the age of nine, gaining As in Mathematics and Further Mathematics and a B in Statistics. He also gained 8 GCSEs, which he sat at the same time as his A-levels.[1] March was accepted at Hong Kong Baptist University, making him the youngest ever university student in Hong Kong.[2] The university designed a tailored 5-year curriculum programme for March, but on his first day of class he criticized his classes as too easy and unstimulating.[3] He obtained B+ and A- in most of the mathematics course in his first year examination which entered him into the Dean's List, an honour dedicated to students with semester GPA of 3.00-3.49 and with no grade below C for a given semester. [4] He will be conferred a Bachelor of Science in Mathematical Science as well as a Master of Philosophy in Mathematics upon successful completion in 2012.[5][6]

March comes from a very talented family, having a brother, Horatio, who enrolled at Oxford University at 13, after studying at Greene's Tutorial College, an institution primarily attended by 16-18 year olds in Oxford. The college specialises in one-to-one tuition, making it possible for March to attain his A levels at such a young age. March commented in an interview that his father does not have sufficient money to educate him at Oxford University. [2]
