But he has had it tougher than most other students in the premier management institute. Yash battled cerebral palsy, dyslexia and dysarthria to clear CAT 2019 with an incredible 92.5% marks. He has difficulty in walking, speaking, writing and numbers, and yet he beat out lakhs of candidates to clear the all-India management entrance exam to get admitted to IIM Lucknow under the persons with disabilities quota for the academic session 2020-22. Yash graduated from Mithibai College in Mumbai with accounting and finance and ranked among the top five. He started preparing from CAT from his second year in college, in July 2018. When he was able to clear CAT, he got calls from several IIMs, including Kozhikode and Indore, but chose Lucknow because of its higher rank.
