“Super proud of my boy who scored a 60% in Class 10 board exams. Yes it is not a 90%, but that doesn’t change how I feel. Simply because I have seen him struggle with certain subjects almost to the point of giving up, and then deciding to give his all in the last month-and-a-half to finally make it through! Here’s to you, Aamer. And others like you – fishes asked to climb trees. Chart your own course in the big, wide ocean, my love. And keep your innate goodness, curiosity and wisdom alive. And of course, your wicked sense of humour!”
This is the message posted on facebook on the day the CBSE Class X results were announced form a mother (Vandana Katoch) for her son who had scored 60% not 90%, and she is proud of him seeing his progress and not giving up. We understand the situation in India during exams of high schools and higher secondary schools. We also know the pressure students are under. Not every student cope up with exams with maturity and does not handles the exam pressure maturely. They are just growing kids after all. Because the world we live in has made marks very important parameter to identify the capacity, ability and strength of a student by marks he scores.
The point here is that the ability of a student is evaluated by marks should not be taken very seriously, but be given importance definitely. In the end what matters is your will power to do any things no exam or evaluation in the world can stop you from achieving you what you in your life. What matters is how desperate are your about your goal and how much efforts do you make to make your dream alive.
Imagine a world very capable world with great employment rate, bright future but Unhappy people. Also, imagine a world under development, a world of Innovation & more moral and happy lives. A world that is unaffected by your scores but productivity and how happy are you even you scored 60% or earn 20,000 instead how depressed you become when you scored 90% or earn Six digit salary.
