Boy Who Died During CBSE Class 10th Exams Scores Nearly 100 Marks In Every Exam He Appeared In

Vinayak Sreedhar, a 10th Class student, who idolised Stephen Hawking, scored nearly 100 in all the three subjects he appeared for during the CBSE Class 10 examination. He passed away in March before he could write the remaining two.

Sreedhar suffered from duchenne muscular dystrophy which is a genetic disorder characterised by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness.

Topping the Class 10 board exams, becoming an astronaut and a trip to Rameswaram were among some of the unfulfilled wishes of Sreedhar, who was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy when he was two-years-old.

The Amity International School, Noida, student appeared for the exams under general category instead of Children With Special Need category.

“We are today in Rameshwaram and are going for darshan in the evening. It was his unfulfilled wish so we decided to not postpone the plans and do it for him” his mother was quoted as saying.

Vinayak Sreedhar’s sister studied at Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and is currently pursuing her Phd at the University of British Columbia.
