Heart in their mouth, class 12 students logged on to the CBSE website at 12 noon only to find it unresponsive. Thankfully, the website was up and running after an hour of impatient wait.
Just when they thought it couldn't get any worse, after the results were announced, students were overwhelmed by the reactions of their parents, relatives, neighbours, friends and even doodh vaalas. This was the most trending sentiment on the social media.
Before the results were announced on May 25, social media was abuzz with advice on stress management. Stand-up comic Vir Das, in his video "on your marks", told students that mark sheets did not matter in life.
While many on Twitter and Facebook advocated that marks were not a measure of one's capabilities, some also discussed the effect of high cut-offs at universities.
Amidst all this anxiety and confusion, students are now expected to make career choices before they lose their seats in universities to competition.
As the day progressed, sentiments shifted from frustration to humour. Here are some of the funniest tweets:
Don't forget the Ramu Chacha's and your neighbours or your doodh vaala,they all wanna know your result,even maasi,far far away. #CBSEResult

Business Idea : A small number plate that can be stuck on the forehead of a 16-18 year old student. #CBSEResult
