Hi there, The Thai calendar is 543 years ahead of the Gregorian calendar. In your question above the student was born in 2517, which in the Gregorian calendar is 1974 (2517-543=1974). That would make the student 28 years old this year. Hope that answers your question! If not, please feel free to ask for clarification before rating this answer.
