Mumbai: Yuvraj Ruparel, a 14 year-old Mumbai student from Aditya Birla World Academy, has been named “one of the world’s brightest students” by the John Hopkins Center for Youth (CTY). His outstanding score on the SAT, ACT, and other exams conducted as part of the CTY Talent Search highlighted his academic brilliance. Yuvraj is one of about 19,000 students from 84 countries who have enrolled this year for this Talent Search.
This qualifies him for CTY’S Online and Summer Program too where students get an opportunity to engage and learn from other bright students across the globe.
It is worthwhile to be noted that less than 20% of students got through and qualified for the CTY High Honours. To measure the true academic abilities, CTY uses above-grade-level testing to identify advanced students from around the world
Students like Yuvraj serve as an inspiration to many others who aspire and dream to aim high. Despite the gloomy atmosphere produced by the pandemic, bright minds like Yuvraj and their sheer willingness, grit and the passion to learn, keeps us all going.
Speaking on the same, Virginia Roach, Executive Director of CTY, said “We are thrilled to celebrate these students. In a year that has been nothing but ordinary, their love for learning shined through, and we are excited to help cultivate their growth as scholars and citizens throughout high school, college and beyond.”
