Shayan Ahmed, from Walsall, was said to be "chuffed" with his result.
Shayan, who attends Hydesville Tower School in Walsall, was driven to Ryde Teaching Services in Bushey, Herts, by his father once a week to study for the exam.
The youngster, who wants to be a doctor, opened his results live on national television in London yesterday morning. He said: "I would like to do it so I can be with my dad. It sounds interesting to be a doctor."
His father, Dr Masood Ahmed, said: "The result was just the icing on the cake. It's been a fun year and he's taught me a bit about computers. A B grade is fantastic because he's happy. He's enjoyed it. He's chuffed."
Shayan is the eldest of six children and missed two months of the GCSE course when his father volunteered to assist in the aftermath of the tsunami in Sri Lanka.
However, Shayan was not the youngest exam success in the country yesterday.
That honour went to Armaan Genomal, from St John's Wood in London, who said he wanted to grow up to be an inventor so he can "touch clouds".
Armaan was among a class of eight pupils aged just six and seven passed the Information and Communication Technology exam after studying with Ryde Teaching Services.
The youngster, who was six only in January and got a grade B, completed the course in just nine months - it normally takes 16-year-olds two years.
"It was quite easy, actually. I came out of the exam with a smile," said Armaan.
He said he preferred the practical parts of the ICT course to the theory.
" I really liked the spreadsheets and things like that. I checked my answers 19 times in the second exam."
And now he wants to master French: " Then every time I go to France I can speak their language."
Armaan, attends Newton Prep in Battersea, south London, a private school linked to Mensa, and supports Arsenal football club and the Royal Family.
Karim Janmohamed, also six years old, from Rickmansworth, Herts, is Armaan's friend at Ryde. He scored a grade C in the ICT exam.
He said he enjoyed the course, but also loved playing sports. "I do swimming, karate and football, cricket, and I'm going to rugby in September," he said.
Karim said he was " excited" about getting his results. and that when he grows up, he would like to be a lawyer, doctor or dentist.
Mike Ryde, who tutored the boys, said he was " extremely pleased".
"I am especially proud of the class of six and sevenyearolds who have demonstrated that children of average ability can achieve academic success regardless of age," he said.
