Kanpur: Delhi boy Sahal Kaushik, who hogged the limelight when he cracked the IIT-JEE exam at the age of 14 this year, has taken admission in an undergraduate course at the IIT Kanpur.
Kaushik, who had secured the 33rd rank at all-India level in the IIT-JEE exam this year, has opted for the five-year integrated MSc (Physics) course, said Sanjeev Kasalkar, Registrar of IIT Kanpur.
"There is no age limit for admission into undergraduate courses. A student has to be intermediate pass only," he said, adding Sahal is the youngest student to take admission in the IIT this year.
He completed his class 12 from Vandana International School in Dwarka, Delhi, securing 78 percent marks.
'To stay with mother'
Meanwhile, as a special case, Sahal Kaushik, the youngest to crack this year's IIT-JEE exam, will stay at home here with his mother and not in the IIT-Kanpur hostel where he has taken admission.
Sahal had asked the institute's authorities for the permission to stay with his mother at his home.
"Sahal is very young so we have given him the permission to stay at his home with his mother. The administration gives permission only in special cases," PTI quoted Registrar of IIT Kanpur, Sanjeev Kasalkar as saying.
"There is, however, no problem in staying in the hostel as everybody is ready to cooperate with Sahal but considering his age we have allowed him to be a day-scholar," Kasalkar said.
