10-year-old Krishna passes Class X exam in UP

Lucknow, August 1

A ten-year-old boy has passed the Class X examination in Uttar Pradesh Board, securing 79 per cent marks.

The child prodigy, Rashtram Aditya Sri Krishna, secured special permission to appear in the Class X examination.

Aditya, who will turn 11 on October 17 this year, scored 82 marks in Hindi, 83 in English, 64 in mathematics, 76 in science, 84 in social science and 86 in Arts.

District inspector of schools, Mukesh Kumar Singh, said, "He is an exceptionally bright student and is an inspiration to many of his age and even to senior students." Seeing his extraordinary talent, the UP Secondary Education Board (UPSEB), in 2019, had given him special permission after which he was enrolled in Class IX at the MD Shukla Inter College in Lucknow.

Principal H.N. Upadhyaya said, "Aditya is an avid reader, and is quick to grasp any concept. He is thorough with topics and can solve sums even with his eyes closed. He is also well-versed with yoga and can speak at length on social issues. He is an asset to our school." This is the second time when UPSEB has allowed a comparatively younger child to appear for Class X board examinations.

Earlier, child prodigy Sushma Verma had enrolled in Class 9 at the tender age of five.

She became the country's youngest matriculate in 2007 when she passed the UP Board examination.

The board rules say a student needs to be at least 14 years of age to appear in Class X board exams but these children have been exceptions. IANS
