“Life Is Much More Than Board Results,” Tweeted IAS Officer Who Got Just Passing Marks In 12th


“Life Is Much More Than Board Results,” Tweeted IAS Officer Who Got Just Passing Marks In 12th

Every person in this world is unique and comparing one person to another on the basis of any parameter is completely wrong. However, we get to see that parents compare their kids with other children, especially on the basis of their results in examinations. There is no denying the fact that good grades or marks can serve as an advantage in the future but it also doesn’t mean that those who have achieved fewer marks won’t be able to do anything good in their lives. If for a moment we reduce our obsession with marks and look around us, we will find that there are many successful people in this world who were either poor or average in studies during their school days. Nevertheless, these people worked hard in order to fulfill their dreams and made not just themselves but their parents proud as well.

Here in this article, we present an example which will make you understand that your marks are not your identity and they don’t have the power to define you. While many youngsters were sad after not being able to score good marks in the board exams, an IAS officer Nitin Sangwan shared his story and revealed that he barely managed to pass in his Chemistry examination in 12th class board examinations as he scored 24 marks which was just one mark more than passing marks. He wrote that his marks didn’t decide what he wanted to achieve in life and then asked the youngsters not be upset with their results. He also asked them to use this moment as a chance to self-analyze rather than criticize.

See his marksheet:

His tweet read, “In my 12th exams, I got 24 marks in Chemistry – just 1 mark above passing marks. But that didn’t decide what I wanted from my life. Don’t bog down kids with burden of marks. Life is much more than board results. Let results be an opportunity for introspection & not for criticism”.

Here is the tweet:

Many people appreciated the IAS officer for the courage of accepting and showing that he got fewer marks whereas some of them shared their struggles as well which is certainly inspiring for those who are soaked in the grief of scoring less percentage in board exams.

Check out some of the selected reactions:
















Life does not end with board exams and there will be many chances to prove yourself in the future so just take a deep breath and plan your next move!
