He did his best

And the best took care of results

Finally his 10th board results came in and what a sweet surprise it is for all of us. He scored a little above 95 percentage and honestly we all are delighted with his results. Honestly we as parents did not set any high expectation - a little over 90 percentage was what we had in our mind. I remember, the kid was telling during his exams that if the teacher's wife will give him good food then he will be in good mode and that will help him get more than 95 percentage 😀. Otherwise he would get somewhere around 93 - 94. I told him to write his expectations immediately after coming from the exam and he did that. My intention was to help him do the self retrospection afterwards.

Don't forget, this was in the teacher being in lovely mood, I love his optimism. He would probably love this post later in his life seeing all these, on the records.

And this was the actual result of his consistent hard work of last 5-6 months only - when we no longer needed to remind him because he was pretty serious. And now he knows the taste of results of hard work.

He was not at home when the results came in, as his classes for 11th have already started. We did not want to miss the moment of his joy and did a little arrangement at home to welcome him and look at his excitements. He will definitely remember this throughout his life - this small celebration in the family matters a lot.

Covid has ruined most of the kids - they were given those gadgets that were forbidden earlier. And it was impossible to control them and make them realize what was more important. We are thankful to all the teachers for putting the extra efforts in last few months and most importantly the kid who got finally serious. The teachers did one thing best - they did not focus on how to get marks. Instead they helped him realize the value of knowledge, learn and master the concepts, practice a lot, solve lot of problems. And he put his best effort to show them that he was capable. Definitely this is not the best in the crowd, but this is the best of all his scores - what else we could have asked for !! We as a parent should always encourage them and show these moments of appreciation - something that gives them build confidence at home - with the family standing behind them. They will face much bigger problems as they grow, but slowly they will learn to work towards a goal. And most importantly accept and be happy with what they get - and make it better as they grow.

After all life is all about experiments and the happiness index that cannot be measured by machines. Imagine the time when he sees this post 30 years from now and show this to his kids.

Congratulations.

this small celebration in the family matters a lot.

Indeed.

I can see the breakdown of the score, I can say it's a terrific performance. We don't need to be the topper all the time, as long we make sure we are among the winners, it's good going.

And parent's role and their mindset towards their kids and most importantly the expectations matter a lot. I am really happy to you both being cordial to your son. And that imbibes a sense of confidence in the kids from the get-go. So congratulations to you as well.

Well I forgot to put the actual, here it comes. They get the confidence from home first, and we know their life is going to be more difficult than us in terms of competition. So they have to learn to be happy - the most important factor of life.

Fantastic score. India is currently enjoying a demographic dividend and this will continue until 2037, which means the youth population will be more, and India now a young country. That implies that be it job or any academic profile or any exam, the competition is going to be fierce, that otherwise implies that parent should help their kid psychologically to successfully negotiate "performance anxiety" and how to manage failure, if any.

And that's most likely because we set the bar high, which is wrong.

Yes, at least that is what we feel as well. There are people who are still unhappy even though their kid scored more than 98% :)

Ahhh, they should be at least grateful for where their kids have reached. That isn't easy. I believe there are those who's kids didn't get up to 50%.

More importantly this is not all for life - always wanting to be on the top is not a great thing, because you never know there will be situations where you will be helpless and can't dictate.

Getting over 95% is great and it's really a big achievement, you should buy him something he desires as a gift for this accomplishment. there are very less students who could score over 95 %. Is he asked you to buy something as a reward?

As you mentioned, the main focus of teachers was to make students gain more knowledge. That's how it should be. Getting good marks is a byproduct.

Wow! Look at this young genius! That´s an amazing achievement, congrats!!! Btw this phrase: "Honestly we as parents did not set any high expectation - a little over 90 percentage was what we had in our mind." sounds funny, in most families, anything around 90% would be very high expectation and huge success ;) Congrats again my friend, you can be really proud of your kids.

Well, 90% now a days is average, if you are not aware. You won't get a seat in good colleges below 95, 98-100 are the best now a days. Not our time, but given that he never scored this high, we were fine with average score, though he was optimistic. Almost more than 50 kids have scored more than 95 in his school alone :)

Yeah, I know what you mean, but even with 90 percentile, it means that you are better than 90% of the other applicants. Or you were not talking about percentile?

It's not percentile :) percentage. In fact, there would be barely any below 75 :)

Not at all, he actually does not like sweet a lot. So far, we have distributed sweets like this, almost 4-5 times :) I knew, people will bang our door with good wishes and ask for sweet. Some even are demanding a party - some kind of excuse we need to celebrate :)

Many many congratulations. In the normal papers in the school, anyone can score so many marks, but it is difficult to score in the board type papers, but the way your son has scored. The celebration is entirely the way you do it. So happy to see your son's happiness, keep up the success in upcoming and exams too.
