Now finishing with his school life, for higher studies, Turing enrolled himself for his graduate degree at King’s College, Cambridge in 1931. He was awarded his degree of mathematic honors with distinction. In 1935, he was elected as a member who is learned and intelligent among others known as a fellow in the University when he proved the central limit theorem in mathematics completing his dissertation on it but this theorem was already proved by Lindeberg in 1922. He was quite intelligent and writing research papers and solving many problems he was capable of solving sums without difficulty.

**Turing’s first love**

“Turing’s first love” can be seen when he was in Sherborne and he formed a very important friendship with a boy named Christopher Morcom who was his classmate. He was inspired by him and Christopher helped Turing in his future endeavors too. But soon Turing had to suffer a loss with the death of Morcom in 1930 due to tuberculosis which was caused by drinking the milk of an infected cow. After a period of grief and sorrow, Turing overcomes the pain and again stood up and worked in his areas of interest.
