The young boy, Isaac Paulallungmuan Vaiphei, who will touch the age of 11 years in November, aspires to give the board exam next March and become the youngest one from his state to do so.
But as per the regulations of BoSEM or Board of Secondary Education Manipur, the age of the student is supposed to be of 15 years as on April 1 of the year in which he or she appears in the board exam of class 10th.
