Class XII student of SKD Academy, Amritesh Kumar said, “I am not tensed at all because I am aware of the fact that tension is of no use. I will score according to my performance and I will score above 93% easily.”
From this it is evident that since Intermediate students have already appeared for boards once in life, they are comparatively more confident to the high-school students who for the first time in their life have appeared for any external state-level examination.
The high-school aspirants are very nervous. Some of them said that family pressure and their ‘great expectations’ is a vital factor for this nervousness.
Avantika Jaiswar (Karamat College) said, “I am extremely scared. I am praying day and night ever since I appeared for my first paper. My family expects above 80% from me because my elder sister got 71%.”
Even in high school there are quite a few students who are extremely excited and confident. Priyanshi Shukla of SKD Academy said, “I am not scared at all. I know I will get the best result. I am sure I will score above 95%. I am habituated of visiting temple, and these days, I go there especially to pray for my board result. “
Students who are awaiting Intermediate results are extremely confident and excited for their results. They know that these marks will count most in their future in whatever filed they go. Their enthusiasm is evident from the fact that they are counting days everyday.
PCM student Abhishek Mishra said, “I am a little nervous because obviously it’s boards! But my exams went very well. I have promised God that if my name appears in Top 10 scorers of the UP Board, I will distribute sweets to all in my locality.”
Arts student Adeeba Ali said, “I am not nervous at all, rather I am confident. I take good sleep and I know I will break all records.”
Though on one hand are students who have taken different vows before God and are offering prayers to him day and night, there are some students who believe that hardwork is the key to success and one should believe in themselves always.
Anand Verma a student of SKD Academy said, “I am not disturbing God by going to temple everyday, nor will I give him any credit in my results. It is solely my own hard work and I know it will pay me off well.”
