Shiv Charan, a 74 year old pensioner from the desert state of Rajasthan, India has failed the class 10 exam for the 38th time! Can you believe this? Shiv Charan first appeared the exam in 1969, but failed. So, he vowed to continue appearing in the exam until he passes or dies.

"It is not in my nature to change. I will fulfil my commitment and continue taking the board examinations till I pass, no matter how long it takes", he said.

This year, he had failed in all subject except one. He scored 14 per cent in English, 17 per cent in science, 5 per cent in mathematics and 25 per cent in Sanskrit. He only managed to pass in Hindi, scoring 34 per cent.
