Caio Temponi is a 14-year-old boy who has been successfully passing the main entrance exams and competitions in the country. But, this Wednesday (14), the young man achieved yet another unprecedented feat: he became the youngest person to pass the Technological Institute of Aeronautics (ITA), which has one of the most difficult tests in the country.
The young man was even honored by the institution’s dean, Professor Anderson Correia. That said, in a social media publication: “we announce those approved in the second phase of the ITA entrance exam and we are pleased to inform you that Caio Temponi, at just 14 years old, is the youngest approved in the history of ITA.”
Recently, the young man even passed medicine for the third time. Caio has also been approved in the last edition of the medical entrance exam at the University of Fortaleza (Unifor), but he didn’t stop there. The most recent approval was for the Civil Engineering course at the Federal University of Cariri (UFCA). In addition to these, the young man went first to the law course at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ).
The teenager has also been ranked first in the entrance exam for Administration at the State University of Ceará (UECE) and, in 2021, he also ranked first in the exam at the Preparatory School of Cadets of the Air (Epcar), in Barbacena (MG), getting all the questions right. Now he is preparing for the contest at the Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica (ITA).
The curriculum of approvals follows right after finishing. Just this year, the student won a gold medal at the 28th International Mathematics Olympiad in May, in the under-13 category. He competed with students from 12 other countries and was the only Brazilian to achieve such a feat and, in addition, achieved the highest score in the exam, 44 points, against 34 of the runners-up.
Recently, Caio also ranked first (13th place) in the Air Force Academy (AFA) competition.
Professor Fabiano de Abreu Agrela, Caio’s advisor and consultant, who also has high IQ and works with other young people of above average intelligence, commented on the subject:
“I work and live with many high-IQ people, either as a consultant/adviser or in the societies I am a member of. But the persistence, willingness and humility in wanting to learn from Caio Temponi, the way he does, is unprecedented for me. I have I am very proud to be able to be with him and his family on this journey.”
