Bill Gates is his idol. His dream? Achieving more than what Gates has, ''especially in the computer field.'' Meet eight-year-old Maulin Raval who recently cleared the online Microsoft Certified Professional Exam in Networking.
Maulin's the youngest person to get the MCP certificate, claims the centre from where he cleared the exam. That's not surprising. A student of Class IV at Atmiya Shishu Vidhya Mandir in Rajkot, Maulin can instal almost all operating systems and assemble as well as disassemble hardware on his own.
Impressed by his photogenic memory, his school director suggested that he take the MCP exam. That's the reason Maulin has a certificate of excellence from Microsoft which reads ''as a Microsoft Certified Professional, you are recognized and prompted by Microsoft as an expert with skills needed to design, implement and support solutions with Microsoft products and technologies.''
Maulin's parents say their son has always excelled — be it academics or extra-curricular activities. On April 8, Maulin appeared for the MCP exam, and on April 12 for his school finals. The result? ''He topped his class with a 92 per cent score and also became the youngest to get this Microsoft certificate,'' says Atmiya director Hemant Mohite. ''We've checked the website and we found that a 11-year-old from New York has cleared the exam. Maulin is much younger,'' he added.
