The future billionaire had test grades so high, examiners ordered a retake. Maye Musk shared the tweet on Wednesday, showing a letter of the tech mogul’s computer aptitude test results.
The test results show straight A+ results for the 17-year-old’s operating and programming tests.
Maye tweeted: “I found your computer aptitude test from when you were 17.
“If I remember correctly, they had to retest you because they had never seen such a high score.”
She continued: “No wonder you are such a brilliant engineer. #ProudMom.”
The letter Maye showed was from the Universiteit Van Pretoria in South Africa, dated May 17, 1989.
The Director of Information Management JLMT Wiechers wrote: “I have requested ISM (SA) to conduct aptitude tests on ELON MUSK regarding computer programming etc.
“The results were outstanding.”
