Bengaluru: Imagine a person who is suffering from a severe form of brain disease. He is admitted to a hospital. But his will to pass with flying colours in an important exam exhorts him to take a leave for a day and attend the exam! 

No, this is not fiction. But it is the real-life story of Parth Dwivedi. With the permission of doctors, he took up the JEE-Advanced exam on September 27. He went to the examination hall straight from the hospital ward. 


And as he returned to the hospital after the exam, it is inspiring to note that he secured the 35th rank in the exam! 

Parth was diagnosed with meningoencephalitis or inflation of the brain. 

The doctors,  who evidenced his progress, agreed to discharge him for a day in order to facilitate him taking up the exam. 

“I am pleased to see him happy and relaxed after a month of hospitalization. This success will get him a seat in any of the IITs and it has made him feel so good that it will help in his recovery,” said his mother Neeti Dwivedi, as quoted by Times of India. 

Parth had been studying religiously for the exam. But unfortunately, he developed excruciating pain, necessitating hospitalisation. 

He was in the ICU since September 6. Later, he was shifted to the general ward. He was discharged on October 4. So that makes a month. 

His parents are from Lucknow. 

As noted by the website, Parth scored 100 percentile in JEE-Main and was a contender to make it to the top five of JEE-Advanced, as per his scores in test papers.
