I think this guy is seriously missing the point.

    Perhaps an "honorary" diploma would be in order.

    I could tell you how medical schools deal with students who fail exams and courses, but you'd be happier not knowing.

    My first thought is that others are missing the point.

    No, not really. I just choose to not be stuffy about it. :p

    Jokes aside, I DO get it and I think he HAS missed the point. He's not getting an education, he's trying to pass a test. Totally different. The person that put him on this path assumed that he would be better off if he were educated; meaning literate, basic math skills, etc. I'm guessing if he had acquired these skills, he wouldn't be getting a 20% after 40 tries.

    What makes you think that he does not understand the difference between an education and a degree?

    At his age and based on his comments (about marriage), I think that he had a pretty good understanding of the humor around this and is having some fun with it.


    Again, I have a feeling that he is not missing the point but that maybe others are.

    EDIT: I should note that I don't have any additional info beyond the article, but my gut tells me that this guy is just having some fun with the situation.

    Agreed. There is a fair amount of satire in this.

    Perhaps you are right, but who knows. So is he failing the exam on purpose or just not taking it at all seriously? Shrug. The guy's a tootsie pop, the world will never know.

    I think the guy is straight up, no act.

    The military is probibly a good way to escape the poverty of lower caste India. And most men do want to be married. And from what I have read, there isn't a whole lot of casual sex going on there either.

    Don't feel bad, it only didn't fly because no one views you as old.

    I think he may have been earnest about passing at one time, but at age 73 I doubt he is thinking too much of either the military or of sex. :D
