Two seniors prove age is no barrier to acquiring knowledge and achieving your dreams
By: Patrick Beech
Age should never be a barrier to knowledge and two senior citizens were recently testament to this.
The duo were spotted sitting for their first end of semester exams at University Sultan Zainal Abidin (UniSZA) in Terengganu along with other students.
R Ramesh, 56, and M Krishnan, 77, had enrolled for their four-year Bachelor of Law course in October last year and were sitting for their 'Introduction to Information Technology' paper.
Ramesh, a father of three, said the last exam he took was 37 years ago in 1986 for his STPM.
"Though it is stressful, I do my best to cope," he said, adding that he received good support from his lecturers and classmates.
Krishnan, 77, meanwhile said though it was tough dividing time between family and studies, he was determined to fulfil his dreams.
The grandfather said he wanted to do his best and pass his exams with flying colours.
