BENGALURU: Having a learning disability and hardships in life did not stop Mohammad Adnan Khasim from scoring high in his class 10 board exams. Support from school and guidance from mother helped him score 9.8 CGPA out of 10. Khasim hopes to pursue medicine after his class 12.

Khasim was a dyslexic but that failed to deter his spirit to excel in studies. In class 10 board exams, he has outperformed many other children in his school and today, he stands as an example for all the students who wish to overcome similar challenges.

“His father deserted us when he was in class four. Ever since, the challenges were aplenty. Following the incident, Khasim began having learning issues,” recollected Khasim’s mother Rumana Firdose.
“I knew he had the ability to comprehend what was being taught in class.

I just helped him learn things in a comfortable manner,” Firdose said. “He would study for additional hours to prepare for exams,” she added.
Khasim was among the nine children in Delhi Public School, North with learning disabilities who were exempted from taking up mathematics and second language.
Honey Chandra, co-ordinator, DPS said, “These children were assessed before asking the board for exemptions. They were permitted to take exams under the dyslexic category.”
