Born on April 21, 1995, Akansha, daughter of Dhanpat Singh Saini, a medical practitioner, passed her Class 12 exam in the science stream as a regular student of Mangalam Vidhyapeeth School in Jaipur.
What has fetched her widespread admiration is that fact that she has never received special guidance or coaching.
"She has always been a studious and brilliant girl. Three years ago she cleared her Class 10 exam from open schools with 53.50 per cent marks, after which she sought admission in Mangalam Vidhyapeeth School as a regular student in class 11, " said Saini.
According to him, Akansha has never gone to any primary school. She first cleared the Class 5 half-yearly exam in Muradabad district of Uttar Pradesh.
Driven by her outstanding performance, she took the Class 8 final exam in the same academic year with only two months of preparation. She secured good marks, after which the family moved to Jaipur.
"No extra amount was ever spent in coaching and tuitions. All the preparations were done by Akansha herself," said Saini.
"In a world of tough competition, there is no use wasting time in lower classes, especially when you have the potential and calibre for higher studies. Today my child is ahead of millions of students of her age," he proudly remarked.
Akansha is disappointed that her age is a big hurdle for her future plans.
"I took up science because I wanted to be a doctor. Despite my achievement, I am not allowed to take the pre-medical test as according to rules the minimum age required is 17 years. My pre-medical form has been rejected on the basis of my age," she says.
"I can appear for the test only six years from now. So I have planned to pursue a B. Tech degree...In these six years, I expect to complete my B.tech, M.tech and my PhD."
