    This is a very sad news to read. Failing in exams is not the end of world. It is the moral duty of parents, siblings and friends to give hope to those who are a little less talented to perform when it comes to exams. Life is much much bigger, challenging and joyous than just clearing the repeat-patterned examination papers (the whole education system in India has gone for a toss!). If exams are not your thing, it is OK to face the truth, talk to your parents about it, be done with it, move on and do something what you are good at. Parents especially need to understand the fact that there are equal better things their kids can do apart from just passing board exams. Passing exams is no longer a matter of pride. Real challenges of life are the ones you never get to read or write an exam about it. Students, whoever are reading this comment, please don’t harm yourselves. Its easy to die but you make life tough for your parents and siblings who are dependent on you. Live! Laugh! Enjoy! You only live once.

    It’s not your fault, it’s the so called society and it’s obnoxious expectations, parental pressure for no apparent valid reason.
    Why kill yourself? Don’t blame yourself. You have one life, exams ain’t the end.
    You may think “oh this is so easy for you to say”
    Well that’s the truth, move on and there’s much more beyond PUC.
    Do you think your parents, college, friends or peers kill you? No.
    Marks do not define you and never will!

    We should not take so serious about result if god has return to pass we will defenatly pass or fail….life is precious we should think about our family our parents……even i fail many times in 2nd puc but i will not take serious …….try & try until we succeeded 👍

    Exams are not the end of the world. Moreover, getting a seat for MBBS or BE is also not the end of the world. There are so many other avenues where one can succeed and flourish. Suicide is never the right thing to do. Do not waste your life, find out what interests you and pursue it. Parents have an added duty to ensure that their children are not made to count themselves as worthless just because they did not pass 10th or 12th exams. Everyone is talented and it is for the discovery of that area that people have to work towards to.

    Why not get rid of these obnoxious public examinations? What do they achieve? Every one criticizes that the current examination system leads to rote learning and does not really help students to be creative. Still we are continuing with this age old system. High time we start the process of getting rid of them.
