Every student who is going to appear in their class 12th board examinations is advised to score more. Though low marks in class 12 don’t mean the end of your career, good marks do mean a wonderful start to a great journey.
It also becomes important if one is interested to grab a seat in the top-notch colleges of the country. Even the best Universities abroad may not take admissions entirely on the basis of board results but it does no harm to work hard to create a respectable first impression.
The date sheet has surely cleared the fog of uncertainty in students’ lives at least to some extent. Whether with good or bad percentages, the knowledge you gain matters the most, and hopefully future India has an array of opportunities for all its students.
