They said marks are just numbers that don’t matter until the time I was rejected from three prestigious institutes in the USA and Europe.
I had everything in my resume needed for those scholarships, except the criteria of a good CGPA which I regret everyday.
While the best marksheets might not give you that golden chance, the average ones might even take away that slightest chance.
Being average with marks is okay if you aren’t ambitious.
Intelligence and knowledge have nothing to do with marksheets but marksheets do land you in places where you get better knowledge and a tag!
P.S: The lines are based on personal experiences. Do remember me if my words help you some day. 🙂
