It is just another result, receive it as one!

'Remember that exams are only a way of arranging you in a hierarchy for admissions. Exams are not the final word in your career, rather they are just the beginning. Therefore, don't get obsessed with the numbers.' Sure, an 88% looks far more impressive than a 66% but that is just for the moment and trust us, in the long run- all that matters is YOU!

Learn to internalise disappointments bravely

Everyone has their share of ups and downs. So, if you feel upset; reach out and talk to your family, friends or counsellors, they are your support system and will be happy to help you navigate through the troubled times. Also, if you see a friend who needs help; reach out to him/her. Remember that life will not always turn out to be the way you want it to be, hence take life as it comes. Put all your efforts in everything you do but don't expect everything to be your way!
