12-year-old Aabhas Sharma has become the youngest student to clear Class XII examination of Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education (RBSE). Despite the historic success, Aabhas, who has cleared Class XII Science and is eyeing to become a doctor, has to wait for five years before he can appear for the AIPMT/NEET exam.
“I didn’t know that, there is an age-criteria to appear in the entrance examination. I have consulted some lawyers to find a way out for my son,” said Sachin Sharma, father of Aabhas. He scored 61% in Class X and 65% in Class XII, reported The Times Of India. Aabhas is a student of Aabhas Public School in Durgapura, which is run by his father. Aabhas took admission in Class I and then he jumped from Class II to Class V.
Plan B for the family is to get him admitted in the college for his graduation and masters. “He will be the first student in the country who will become eligible for medical entrance examination after his masters,” said Jain.
