The noted musician did a great job of balancing school and music back when he was still a student. Chris Martin was previously educated at the esteemed Sherborne School in Dorset. With an IQ of 142, it is quite possible he had to ward off university admissions with a stick. He later earned his degree in ancient Latin and Greek studies with first-class honors at the University College London (UCL). It was at UCL where he met his Coldplay bandmates.
While in college, Martin pursued music and formed a band in 1996 with Johnny Buckland, Will Champion, and Guy Berryman. Their band was initially called Pectoralz. They later changed it to Starfish and finally settled on Coldplay. Definitely the best of the three!
