Who is March Tian Boedihardjo?

March Tian Boedihardjo is a child prodigy of Chinese Indonesian descent.

Born in Hong Kong, with family roots in Anxi, Fujian, Boedihardjo moved to the United Kingdom in 2005, when his older brother Horatio won a place at the University of Oxford. Horatio Boedihardjo was accepted at Oxford's DPhil program in 2008, making him one of the university's youngest such students.

March Boedihardjo finished his A-level exams in Britain at the age of nine years and three months, gaining As in Mathematics and Further Mathematics and a B in Statistics. He also gained 8 GCSEs, which he sat at the same time as his A-levels. He was accepted at Hong Kong Baptist University, making him the youngest ever university student in Hong Kong. The university designed a tailored 5-year curriculum programme for March, but on his first day of class he criticized his classes as too easy and unstimulating. He obtained B+ and A− in most of the mathematics course in his first year examination which entered him into the Dean's List, an honour dedicated to students with semester GPA of 3.00-3.49 and with no grade below C for a given semester.
