Poor Shiv-Charan Yadav has cemented his place as India's worst student, having failed his Year Ten exams for the 40th consecutive year...
He pledged he would not marry until he passed. That was in 1969...
Last week, the wannabe scholar passed with 34 per cent in Hindi but failed in Sanskrit (25 per cent), science (17 per cent), English (14 per cent) and mathematics (five per cent).
But there is always next year. 'As long as I am alive, I will go on taking examinations in order to get a wife,' vowed Mr Yadav.
A neighbour said: 'He is probably the worst student in the world but God has tested him a lot, now luck should smile on him.'
