Meet 104-yr-old Kuttiyamma from Kerala who just scored 89 out of 100 in literacy exam

Kerala's Education Minister Vasudevan Sivankutty posted a picture of 104-year-old Kuttiyamma on social media to wish her on the feat.

There is no age bar to learning and education. And Kerala's 104 year old Kuttiyamma is the shining example of this.

The centenarian woman has scored 89 out 100 marks in an exam conducted by the state government's continuing education initiative.

Kerala's Education Minister Vasudevan Sivankutty posted a picture of 104-year-old Kuttiyamma on social media to wish her on the feat.

"104-year-old Kuttiyamma from Kottayam has scored 89/100 in the Kerala State Literacy Mission's test. Age is no barrier to enter the world of knowledge. With utmost respect and love, I wish Kuttiyamma and all other new learners the best," he tweeted, along with the picture of a beaming Kuttiyamma.

Reports said that Kuttiyamma had never received any formal school education. Although she could read, Kuttiyamma did not know how to write. Because of the state govt's literacy programme, she learned writing as well. The classes were held every morning and evening at her home. After attending the classes, Kuttiyamma became eligible to take the exam for fourth standard.

The Kerala State Literacy Mission Authority aims to promote literacy, continuing education and lifelong learning for all citizens. Currently, it provides equivalency programs for 4th, 7th, 10th, 11th and 12th standards.
