When ISC 2018 exams were going on, a boy from Lucknow, Anmol Srivastava did not know that his life was going to change forever. On February 26, the day of his mathematics exam he received a devastating news – his father, Ajay Kumar Srivastava, had passed away.

“It was the most horrifying moment of my life. I was crying bitterly and was not in a position to appear for the examination. I told my mother I would not take the mathematics paper,” Anmol told Hindustan Times.

He secured 100% marks in mathematics with an aggregate of 98.25% marks.

His initial unwillingness to sit for the exam was overcome by his mother’s pursuance and father’s words. “My mother told me that a few moments before his death my father told her that I should give the examination. My father had said to her that even if he dies, his last rites could wait but I should not skip the examination,” said Anmol, a student of City Montessori School, Kanpur road branch.

“At 10 am, I was in the hospital sitting near my father’s body. The reporting time at my school was noon and the examination was to start at 2 pm. I had only 2 hours to dress up and reach school,” he says, adding that whatever he had studied was washed away in the grief.

“Words cannot describe the pain and trauma I was going through while I was taking the examination,” he says, reported Hindustan Times.

“My father worked in a public sector unit and was good at mathematics. He helped me in solving difficult calculations with ease. I scored 95.4% in ICSE examinations because of mathematics,” Anmol adds.

Anmol’s mother says that he cried for a long time after he came back from the examination hall. His father’s last rites were performed on February 27. The very next day he had is English examination.

“I was completely shattered. Probably it was because of my father’s blessings that I could write my paper,” he says.

“My elder brother Anupam Srivastava is pursuing B Tech. Now, our aim is to fulfil our father’s dream and to take care of our mother. My father was my role model and will remain so throughout my life,” he says.

Anmol has qualified JEE Mains and he is pretty confident about clearing JEE Advanced. He wants to fulfil his father’s dream of him becoming a B.Tech graduate.
