This week a 13 year old UK born Amritdhari Singh from North London became one of the youngest students to pass Panjabi Language AS Level in England. The AS level examination is the first year of the A Level examination normally taken by 17 year olds.

Jagdeep Singh, a student of the Compton School in Barnet, previously passed a GCSE in Panjabi Language with a grade A, aged 11.

Young Jagdeep is said to be happy with the result and looking forward to his other examinations in the near future. Last weekend, the young and talented devout Sikh boy was recommended to The Royal Institution of Great Britain for Mathematic masterclasses for Young People.

Commenting on Jagdeep's achievement, Ravjeet Singh, his elder brother, said: “Jagdeep Singh has worked very hard for his AS level whilst practicing his faith as a devout Sikh. He has proven again that children can achieve at a younger age with Waheguru’s Grace and if given the opportunity.”

Jagdeep Singh is also learning Kirtan and this year started his first Sehaj Paatth of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. His ambition is to be a faithful practicing Sikh and make his family and community proud.
