In Britain, an 81-year-old Bangladeshi grandfather created a new record by passing the GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) examination with his 16-year-old granddaughter.

Alhaz Muhammed Abdul Matin, who lives in Wood Green, London, said that he decided to sit for GCSE higher maths exams this year to encourage his youngest granddaughter. Abdul Matin said that, his granddaughter Natalia’s studies were being disrupted due to the corona pandemic. To inspire Natalia, he decided to sit on the examination table together.

Abdul Matin, a retired structural engineer, recounts his experience of taking Edmonton’s sixth form exams, saying sitting in an exam hall next to a bunch of teenagers gave him renewed inspiration at 81 years old.

Another granddaughter of Abdul Matin, Kaya said, Dada has always been very interested in studying and learning, especially in mathematics.

As a person who loves learning, he has worked from the place of his passion and love in education.

He has contributed a lot of his life’s earnings to build schools in Bangladesh. He has inspired many people, especially in engineering.

Matin recalls his student days, telling his grandchildren that when he completed his degree, they didn’t even have a calculator.

Alhaz Muhammad Abdul Matin first obtained his civil engineering degree in Bangladesh and after coming to the UK in 1963, he joined Aston University and completed another civil engineering course.

In the UK he retired as an engineer with Transport for London for many years.

After opening his results announcement last Thursday (August 24), he went on to express his feelings after getting four grades, I feel happy with my grades. At my age, I took the test as part of sharpening my memory to delay dementia-like forgetfulness. I am proud to be doing this adventure at the age of 81 with my youngest granddaughter who is 16 years old.


Natalya, who is also celebrating her results, said it was a different feeling to sit the exam with dear grandfather.
