Learning is never too late, even when you are 84 years old
Thai grandma cycles to take exams in school uniform.

The media's "typical" college student lives on a campus at a four-year institution. But that describes no more than a sixth of the total college population. In fact, there are more college attendees over the age of 30 than such "typical" students. The most significant shift in higher education is the massive growth in the adult-student population.

Here’s a little proof  to show all that, one is never too old to learn. This is an 84-year-old grandma, who decided she was going to pass the 6th grade. And this week, she finally made it a reality.

On Sunday, Kaysorn Sukserm of rural Yasothon province, wore a school uniform to take her 6 exam at Kum Keun Kaew Chanoopathum School, which serves as a testing facility for non-formal education.

Wuttichai Suphap, a teacher at the school who spotted Kaysorn, decided to film the grandma riding her bicycle home after the exam.

“In my day, the highest mandatory education level was fourth-grade, so I didn’t have a chance to learn,” Kaysorn said in the video.

Asked why she didn’t ask her kids or grandkids to drive her to the exam, her answer is simple and sweet. She said that they all had jobs, so she didn’t want to bother them.

Wutthichai wrote in a lengthy post that he was very impressed by the granny, who didn’t let age get in the way of her goals.

“I was so impressed and surprised to see that the granny is still working to improve herself, breaking all the traditional ideas about education. She’s not embarrassed at all to join classes with students as young as her children and grandchildren.”
