I wanted to write this post ever since the 12th results were out…but anyway…..
12th exams are given a lot of hype…and the students are under tremendous stress and pressure to perform well….to meet the expectations of their parents and teachers…..to get good marks…to get admission in a good college….and what not…

Once the results are released…emotions run wild…. a few are elated and ecstatic… many are dejected…having expected more….but scored much less…parents are more anxious than the students…some parents are understanding and they empathize with their wards…but some are annoyed as though they’ve reached the ends of their lives….all this trauma is because of this 5 lettered word….m-a-r-k-s


Many people say that the present way of awarding marks in an exam is not appropriate …thanks to the education system….they test what we’ve toiled for 6 months in 3 hours and within minutes..say about 3…our fate is sealed….so what is important is not that 6 months of hard work and preparation……all those days of sleplessness.. is not of any worth…its just those 3 hours…..180 minutes…that decides are fate and we are judged only by its outcome…what an excellent education system we have!
