OMG! 77-Year-Old Bachelor To Sit For Secondary School Exams For The 47th Time

This really got me thinking. A bachelor at the age of 77 still trying to write secondary school exams for the 47th time? Anyway, one learns from his failures and with determination, even the impossible is achievable. According to Times of India, 77-year-old Shiv Charan Yadav is trying his luck for the 47th time to clear the secondary school examination. Yadav, who hails from Khohari village in Alwar has been writing the exam for the last 46 years, but up till now, he has not succeeded.

Yadav says that he is not among those who will accept failure and has full confidence that this time, he will clear the exam. Preparing for the Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education (RBSE), Yadav will be appearing for the exam on March 10. It is also known that he remained a bachelor to achieve the aim of his life - to clear his class X exams.  

Speaking to Times of India, Yadav said that he first appeared for the exam in 1968, but failed. He explains that each time, he passes in one subject, but fails in another, like if he passes in Hindi, but fails in Mathematics. He hopes to clear all the papers this time to at a single go. 

 It is also known that the last time he came close to clear all the papers was in 1995, when he passed in all the subjects but failed in maths. With confidence, he says that this time, he has taken tuitions for the exams and will crack the exam so that he can die in peace. 

Here's wishing him best of luck in his life's endeavours.
