I never scored better, nor did i ever try to...i know, am not a big shot. But thats not any of the reason. Thankfully, i took a decision, a very firm one must say, that i will not mug up, each and every thing in the syllabus. I will study only those I like, rest of them I will just go through once. I will set up my own targets and that definitely should not be any of my classmates aggregate scores. Many of my close ones tried to provoke me about my best and good frens, "see how much they can score, why cant you?" Thats the most familiar statement, which echos to our mind, when we just think about school time results. I promised to myself, I will be happy, with watever my children will score. If they have potentials, I will at best, push them a bit to set up, a 70% target and maintain the standards. It should not matter, how much did the first boy/girl scored. Dont we realise that knowing 70% of any class syllabus is enough for any one, we are not going to remember even 20-30% of the things, as they are not gonna be that useful to our daily/proffessional life. Then why do we really have to eat up thier mind and push them for each and everything.
People now send thier children to school as soon as they turn 2 years. And call it a play school, funny, rt?...and then there is bag, much heavier than thier weight can carry. Too many subjects, and not surprisingly, boringly strict teachers, who actually couldnt do much in thier life, but wants all thier students to be stars.
Now the question is even after this so called glaobalised educational system, why we dont get any (forget many)Eintiens & Newton these days. The answer is simple, because both of them failed too many times in thier school life. Now a days u just cant afford to do so!
