Panchayat Vice Prez all set to appear for +2 equivalency exam
Eramangalam: Maranchery Grama Panchayat Vice President Purangipattu Abdul Azeez is preparing for his Higher Secondary Equivalency Plus Two exam which starts on Monday. Along with the exams, the 55-year-old man has to take care of the COVID preventive measures in his panchayat.
Earlier, he had registered for the Class 7 Equivalency Examination provided by Literacy Mission but didn’t attempt to write the examination. Later in 2016, he renewed the registration and appeared for the 7th standard equivalent exam. After clearing the 7th standard equivalency exam, he passed the 10th standard equivalency with first class in 2018.
Later, he joined the Higher Secondary Equivalency Course. Now, he is hoping to pass the 12th standard equivalent.
"English is very tough for me. But my son Mohammad Naif, who is a 10th class student of Kadakassery Ideal English School helps me to learn the lessons. His support builds my confidence a lot," said Abdul Azeez.
Abdul Azeez was forced to drop out of seventh grade and go in search of work to look after his family.
He is happy that he could restart his education at the age of 55. The message of Abdul Azeez to everyone is not to waste any opportunity to start learning in life.
