Student to earn second college degree at 14 years of age

IQ test for kids

For some college students, it takes more than four years to complete one degree. California resident Moshe Kai Cavalin does not have this problem, as he is currently pursuing his second degree at the age of 14, ABC News reported.

When he was just 11, Cavalin graduated from East Los Angeles Community College. This year, he will add a degree in math from the University of California, Los Angeles to his growing list of academic credentials. Despite his accomplishments, the young student does not like to be defined by his intellect.

"Genius is just a word just like IQ is a number," said Cavalin, as quoted by the news source. "It just classifies [them] at one point and ignores everything else that makes the individual who they are."

Cavalin's mother quickly realized how bright her son was when he began to read college-level books at just 2 years of age, the news outlet stated.

If parents feel that their child may be similar to Cavalin, they may want to have him or her complete an IQ test for kids. According to the National Society for the Gifted & Talented, parents should also pay attention to whether or not their child is a problem solver, perfectionist or abstract thinker, as these are often signs of giftedness.
