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.”

Musk’s company SpaceX announced on Thursday that it had launched 60 Starlink satellites from a complex at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The Starlink satellites can deliver ultra high-speed broadband connections to locations which have before now been unreliable or completely unavailable.

Elon Musk graduated from Pretoria Boys High School in 1989 and in the same year applied for a Canadian passport through his mother.

At only age 17, Musk enrolled at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.

He then transferred to the University of Pennsylvania two years later, where he eventually graduated with a dual bachelor’s degree in economics and physics.
