A professor in Chennai, India has obtained a staggering 145 degrees over a period of 30 years — and has no plans to stop studying anytime soon.
Professor VN Parthiban, 56, started his incredible journey after he struggled to get his first degree. He often mixed up his course work and studied for the wrong tests.
As a result, he failed to get satisfactory results, angering his mother. After his graduation, he started working but yearned to improve. He therefore enrolled for another degree.
He gained interest in a wide variety of subjects and soon found himself obtaining one degree after another.
In an interview, he said: "In the last thirty years I have been continuously in the process of preparing for exams and applying for new degrees or diploma courses."
His degrees include 3 Master of Science degrees, 8 Master of Law degrees, 8 Master of Commerce degrees, 9 Master of Business Administration degrees, 10 Master of Arts degrees, and 12 various research degrees.
However, the intense knowledge intake has affected his memory, as he struggles to recognize people sometimes. He is married with two kids.
