[h=1]When schools are becoming commercial Institutes to mint money…., studying at homes proves better…… needs to be encouraged[/h][h=1]17-year-old 'unschooled' Malvika Joshi makes it to MIT[/h]
Seventeen-year-old Malvika Raj Joshi doesn't have a class X or XII certificate but has made it to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), thanks to her computerprogramming talent.

Her's is a story about a mother's conviction to break stereotypes and the self belief of her teenage daughter, who showed why merit has more weightage than marks.

The Mumbai teenager has been provided scholarship by the MIT as she is pursuing her Bachelor of Science degree after getting a seat for being a three-time medal winner (two silver and a bronze) at International Olympiad of Informatics or commonly known as ProgrammingOlympiad.

MIT has a provision for accepting students who are medal winners at various Olympiads (Maths, Physics or Computer) and it was Malvika's medals that ensured that she can fulfil her aspirations of pursuing research work in her favourite subject of Computer Science.

Malvika recalls those early days during an emailed interaction from Boston.

"When I started unschooling, that was 4 years back, I explored many different subjects.Programming was one of them. I found programming interesting and I used to give more time to it than to other subjects, so, I started liking it at that time," she says.

Malvika found it difficult to get admission in elite Indian institutes like IIT, which has strict rules as one needs to pass class XII exams.
