July 7, 2020/0/0


Maths Circle, based here at Bedford Heights, have been on a roll recently, first winning a Bett EdTech award, then a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, and now creating a brand new Guinness World Record category for their very own app, Times Tables Rock Stars – Highest score achieved on Times Tables Rock Stars in one minute.

Nadub Gill, aged just 10 years old, has answered an astonishing 196 multiplication and division questions correctly in one minute. That is more than an incredible 3 correct answers per second! Head to to see a video of his official title-winning attempt.

Guinness World Records and Times Tables Rock Stars created a new title – Highest score achieved on Times Tables Rock Stars in one minute – to find out who is the fastest at their times tables in the world. Seven hundred Official Attempts were made with many children practising their times tables during lockdown. The competition was fierce with some excellent scores submitted by children from all around the world. But it was Nadub, who attends Longmoor Primary School in Long Eaton, who absolutely smashed it and claimed the title!

Nadub says “I am very thrilled and excited to achieve this title. It is like a dream!”. He adds “I am thankful to my school and my teachers, who encouraged me to attempt this record. They encouraged me a lot and I think they have played a big role in my success.” When asked if he had any advice to any budding times tables rock heroes out there Nadub modestly replied “the more you practice the better you will get”.

Bruno Reddy, CEO and founder of TT Rock Stars says “The numbers don’t make sense when you think about it – more than 3 correct answers every second – which makes it one of those rare achievements that defies belief. Nadub’s astonishing score has pushed the boundary of what anyone thought was possible on Times Tables Rock Stars and I suspect it will be a long time before anyone beats it. Nadub has our full admiration, not only for earning the title but also for his humble attitude when receiving it.“

Craig Glenday, Editor-in-Chief at Guinness World Records, says “It’s truly mind-boggling how these young people can blast through so many calculations in such a short time. It’s a real test of mental and physical dexterity and it’s a pleasure to welcome Nadub to the GWR family.”
