Akansha Singh Saini will never find a mention in the Guinness Book of World Records, but her achievement is no mean feat. Akansha cleared the much-dreaded Class XII board exam at the age of 11!

Akansha, who opted for the science stream, appeared from the Mangalam Vidhyapeeth School in Jaipur. What has fetched her widespread admiration is the fact that she never received special coaching.

Akansha, however, is disappointed that her age is a big hurdle for her future plans, “I took up science because I wanted to be a doctor. But I am not allowed to take the test as I am underage.”
