He scored 100% in all five exams.Trinchero told 702 Talk Radio that teachers at Somerset College, recognising his growing talent for mathematics, introduced him to the Cambridge AS Examinations in 2015. Consisting of some of the most notoriously difficult mathematics problems ever devised, the Cambridge tests are taken by prospective engineers and theorists seeking to enter into the competitive air/space science industry and the fields of astro and quantum physics.He hoped to study theoretical physics and computer science at a South African university after he finished high school, he told the radio host, Keino Kammies. “I’ve always been passionate about maths, and have had passionate teachers. All of that is the catalyst for success. I’ve always done well because I’ve been surrounded by people who encouraged me,” Trinchero said.“The quality of Dario’s answers secured him the honour, not simply the 100%,” said Meg Fargher, the executive head of Somerset College in Somerset West. “We are extremely proud of Dario and his teachers on this incredible achievement.”Source: LeadSA
