KARACHI: Futuristic Learning proudly announces a new Guinness World Record set by its student Mustafa Alam, who memorized and accurately recalled, 342 randomized binary numbers in one minute, in Karachi, Pakistan. This record-breaking achievement surpasses the previous record of 270 binary numbers set in 2015 by a participant from India. 

This recent triumph marks the sixth Guinness World Record achieved by students of Futuristic Learning under the mentorship of coach Sania Alam. The institute is renowned for its excellence in memory training, having previously set world records in various memory disciplines: 

Mustafa’s achievement in memorizing 342 binary numbers, which are just 0s and 1s, in one minute is a remarkable display of mental speed and focus. This means he was identifying and memorizing over five numbers every second.

Mustafa used to memory train with coach Sania Alam to aid his studies, but it quickly evolved into a deep interest in showcasing the potential of memory training and proving that it can be developed at any age. He says, “Memory is not a passive attribute; rather, it is an active skill that can be cultivated like any other skill”.
