62-year-old man takes matriculation exam to measure intelligence gap between young and old

Wanting to know the difference in intelligence between youths and elders, he took the 2024 matriculation exam, said a 62-year-old man.

He sat for the matriculation exam at the exam centre located at No.6 Basic Education High School in Yangon Region’s Botahtaung township, said the man who did not want to be identified.

“I’m really delighted that the exam is for education upgrade, that’s why I sat for it. Education reform is good, as it aims to be modernized later. If the education continues going like that, it can compete with the international education. It is interesting too. Today is biology exam. Biology includes 8 chapters and the exam covered all chapters, so students can no longer study only the selected chapters. Questions are founded on general thinking, practical knowledge and thinking,” he said.

He is confident of passing the exam and he said he had made preparations 7 months advance the exam.

“I missed some lessons. I took the exam because I wanted to know what is international education and grade 12 education, how it differs from the modern time and difference in intelligence between adolescents and elders. I wanted to show that elders still have  intelligence,” he said.

He had attempted to implement this plan in previous years, but failed, and was allowed to participate this year, he added.
