9-year old genius who wanted to graduate from university before age 10 quits following row with university

A nine-year-old child genius has quit his university degree following a row about his graduation date.

Laurent Simons, from Amsterdam, was on track to become the world's youngest graduate.

But his record breaking plans were scuppered when he was informed he would not be able to complete his degree before he turns 10 on Boxing Day.

The youngster was told by the Dutch university of Eindhoven it would not be possible for him to sit his remaining exams in time.

His disappointed parents have now made the decision to terminate his studies.

Laurent - who has an IQ of 145 - made headlines around the globe last month, as he looked set to complete a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering at Eindhoven's University of Technology before the end of the year.
