Not too old for education: old man sitting MSCE steals the internet


This image has sparkled social media reactions.

A photo of a man purported to be over 60 is circulating on the internet. The man is sitting for his MSCE.

While the school and the identity of the man are being treated as private, it is believed that the man is sitting for his MSCE so as to improve his fortunes.

One of the pages that circulated the photo urged young people to emulate the example of the old man of getting education other than rushing for fleeting riches.

“Get an education, even the old are getting an education,” wrote the page.

Candidates are sitting for MSCE which started on 22nd June and will be finished by the majority on 5th July.



  1. I remember very well when I was writing my MSCE, I wrote with a certain old woman who was old enough to be my grand mother, and she came out with 18 points, as iam talking I heard that she is doing tourism @ mzuni, she had a vision, so for that old Man I should say big up to him, and i hope he will make it!
