At 12, He’s Taking Two University Degrees | On The Red Dot – Super Teens

12-year-old Nathanael Koh is taking not one, but two university degrees – in mathematics and music! As if that wasn’t enough, he is also the composer-in-residence for the Kids Philharmonic Orchestra, writing symphonies for the music ensemble. But Nathanael’s advanced academic ability makes it difficult for him to relate to and befriend his peers.

16-year-old Dhruv Manoj once broke the world record at a memory championship, recalling more names and faces (96!) than anyone before him! But he tried to teach his friends his mnemonic tricks to help in the exams, the results were less than desired.

Is being a teen genius all that it is cracked up to be?
