91-yr-old Grandma gets her first University Degree

A 91-year-old grandma, Kimlan Jinakul has received her bachelor's degree in Human Ecology from Sukhothai Thammathirat Open University (STOU) near Bangkok, Thailand on Wednesday.

The road to graduation was not easy for Kimlan, as she took more than 10 years of on-off study to complete the course since first applying in 1998. 

The university said Kimlun had not received any special treatment in terms of grading and had in fact failed half of her courses and had to resit examinations on several occasions.

"When I was young, I actually received good grades.I have always enjoyed reading. I even bought manuals to educate myself so I could help my children with their homework." , she said.
