He has applied to study mathematics or science at the Hong Kong University, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the University of Science and Technology and Hong Kong Baptist University.
His brother who is now studying at Oxford University, enrolled there when he was only 13.The Universities are considering his application as they await his A level results in which March is confident he will get straight As. University authorities say that March’s results will not be the only consideration – his psychological readiness for university is something they will have to determine.
