A 68-year-old man is preparing to take his secondary school exam in India - for the 35th time.
Shyoram Yadav, from the village of Tasing in Rajasthan, has been trying to pass the exam since 1969.
He has vowed to remain unmarried until he does.
"Education is everything in life," Mr Yadav told BBC World Service's Outlook programme.
"Education rules the world: education is supreme even among your own brothers, your own society, your government, and abroad." Tripped up
So far, Mr Yadav has failed a different subject each year.
He says that when he attempts to improve on a failed exam the following year, another subject trips him up.
