Do Marks Really Matter? The Myths and Reality behind Class 12 Exam Results


Do marks really matter? I would be lying if I would say marks are not important – The truth is that they are. But, they are not the only thing that matters.

Let us take the example of Bill Gates. In one of his speeches, he says: I failed in some subjects in the exam but my friend passed in all, Now he is an engineer in Microsoft, and I am the owner of Microsoft.”

Here is something you must know-

*You really can undo a bad score through never giving up.*

Now you are thinking how right?

If you are unhappy with your scores, don’t worry, you just failed at something. Which is great! You are on a roller coaster that only goes up my friend. There is so much to learn from here.

Congratulations if you did well! On the contrary, you will have to wait some other time to know what it is like to fail. Don’t be sad and wait for your turn and when it does come, trust me it will be awesome.

Do grades matter in life?- The Real Face

Here are some of the common myths and realities which are associated with the *famous* Class 12 Board Exam Results.

1. It’s NOT the end of life

Myths: Everyone believes that the Class 12 results are the major deciding factor for any career that you want to go for in the future. And, if you do not score well here, you are ‘screwed’ for life.

Reality: IT IS NOT the end of life. You will get a lot of other opportunities to prove your worth. You failed once, and it is okay! Everyone does! No big deal.

2. IIT’s and IIM’s Scare

Myths: IIT’s and IIM’s and DU will decide your future. If you do not get admission here, you will never do well.

Reality: Right NOW, I can list out so many people who have been doing exceptionally well. And, guess what? They have not studied from any of the IIM’s or IIT’s. It seems like it doesn’t matter much!

3. The ‘We hate Relatives’ Union

Myths: Relatives are the ones who leave you all scared and worried. They ask you your marks because, um, well, ‘they care.’

Reality: They don’t! They just don’t! They will talk to you about your score for a day and later on get busy with themselves. I’m a part of the ‘we-hate-relatives’ and ‘boycott-relatives’ union. Wanna join me?
