A 14-year-old physics major has become the youngest person ever to graduate from Texas Christian University.

Carson Huey-You who minored in Chinese and Math was among more than 2,000 students getting degrees on Saturday at the Fort Worth school.

Carson - who is just four years older than the world's youngest college graduate - said even though his achievements have already put him in the history books, he aims at getting graduate and doctorate degrees in quantum mechanics.

He, however, says he does not see himself as any different from others his age.

"I’m a normal dude,' he told the Star-telegram. 'It is just something I have learned to deal with because to me, I am not a genius. I am a normal 14-year-old person doing college-level stuff."

Carson first shot to the spotlight in 2013 when he entered the university at 11 years old. This was after his graduation as the co-valedictorian in his high school.

He, however, indicated that his new surroundings intimidated him.

He also mentioned that his college classes were a lot more difficult than he anticipated.

"It was scary at first because my high school was only one building versus a massive campus with tons of people,' Carson told the paper.

"After that, I really did get used to it because TCU was so accommodating and a positive influence really.

"When I used to get bad test scores or something like that, I would go home and be disappointed and think about, "Oh, I should have known this, I should have done way better."

But the self-described "normal dude" said that he has now learned how to deal with "some real hard classes" and get over the disappointment of a poor score on a test.
