But the most important thought occupying my mind at the moment is, whether I should give priority to the course or to the college

One would like to believe that life before Boards result is about anticipation and fear of making it or not. But for me, days post the result have been very tiring. Whoever I meet asks me about my marks and my future plans. Some congratulate me, while others encourage me by saying that I will definitely get admission into a good college. But the most important thought that is occupying my mind at the moment is, whether I should give priority to the course or to the college. While 93% is a decent score, still am not sure if it will be enough to fetch me economics (honours) at St Stephens.

Some suggest that I should compromise on the course and give preference to the creamy layer of colleges. While others are telling me to stick to the course of my choice even if I don’t get into the top-most college. As of now, I have purchased the form for St Stephens, where I will be applying for economics (honours) and English (honours). Apart from that, as June 15, the date when the cut off lists will be out, is nearing, the anticipation along with uncertainty is on a rise. However, I am confident that I’ll land up somewhere or the other, because destiny sure has something good in store...
