As the S.S.C. results have been declared, I would first and foremost like to congratulate all students who have passed in their examinations. However there is a need for those students who failed in their examinations not to be discouraged but try again and don’t give up hope. Speaking of my own personal experience, I understand the feeling of failure as I had appeared my S.S.C. examination in 1981 and passed out in 1985, after I kept trying till I finally succeeded. The students must understand that failure is not the end of everything but the beginning of a new phase where we must look in to pursue new hobbies, develop our talents, that will help you to keep your mind occupied and will encourage you not to give up hope.
