Boris Johnson struggles with A-level maths question during school visit, scratches head

- UK prime minister, Boris Johnson, could not solve A-level mathematics problem despite the explanations he was given

- The encounter with the maths question happened during his visit to the King's College London Mathematics School

- The A-level's efforts to explain the complex formulae needed to solve the question all proved abortive

UK prime minister, Boris Johnson, struggled to solve advanced mathematics in a classroom he visited on Monday, January 27.

According to Metro UK, a video showed the UK prime minister scratching his head, trying to see how he could provide answers to the question at King’s College London Mathematics School.

Despite the fact that some A-level students tried to explain the difficult formulas of the questions to him, he still did not get it.

It should be noted that he was at the school to begin the new Global Talent visa which will come to take the place of Tier 1 (Exceptional Talent) as from Thursday, February 20.
