This phase of life is a prize in disguise despite of the discomfort it causes.
“Take your board exams seriously, ye tumhari life ka turning point hai”
“agar 12th me ache marks nahi aye to kahi admission nahi milega”
“life me successful hona hai to 12th me ache marks lana bahot zaruri h”
I hope it reminds you of the time when you had to appear for your board exams.
We all had heard such things from our parents, relatives, teachers and every other person around us when we were about to give our board exam.
These statements did nothing but added to your mental stress. Forcing you to believe that, of course, you won’t be able to achieve anything in your life if you fail to score good in your exams. You will end up doing the least lucrative jobs giving less satisfaction, money, and reputation. Your contribution in your life, towards your parents and society, will become insignificant.
Well in the present era, where everyone is after the numbers. It is hard to believe that your board percentage does not define your future. Certainly, scores play a significant role in getting admission in the top-notch colleges or acquiring engineering or a medical degree, but these are not the only means to be successful in life. Even if you have scored less in your boards, it is not a dead end.

Society’s pressure, stress, ignorance and may be the unwillingness to study can be some of the reasons behind your low scores. While sometimes it may be just because of the choices you made, like choosing a wrong stream and the cut-short method you opted to achieve more with fewer efforts.
Whatever may be the cause for your bad score in the 12th board exams, it does not mean it is the end.
