Just like we cannot imagine the depth of the ocean by counting its waves or measure the strength of the sun by counting its rays, we can also not determine the future of someone’s dreams based only on their result in one examination. But such is life in present times that we have started determining the future of our dreams purely in terms of marks scored and that too in a single examination result.
I’m sending you this message on the eve of declaration of class 12th Bihar Board result. Millions of students and their parents will again pin their hopes on scoring top marks in the result. They will be conjuring up dreams of a future based solely on the child’s marks. However, the truth is that marks are nothing more than mere statistics. Marks can never be an accurate measure of a student’s true potential.
