A 12-year-old student, Issac Paulallungmuan, has scored 72 per cent in Manipur high school leaving certificate (HSLC) exam. He is the first 12-year-old child who had appeared and cleared the High School Leaving Certificate examination in the first division.
Issac was given a special clearance by the Board of Secondary Education Manipur to sit in the HSLC exam conducted in February-March, 2020.
"Results were a bit below my expectation. I want to study Zoology and Paleontology as I'm interested in animals. We should always believe in ourselves," Issac said.
Eldest among six siblings, Issac is a resident of Kangvai in Churachandpur.
