Marks are not everything in life. The marks obtained in the 10th 12th board examinations do not decide your success and ability. Even if you have been an average student in school and college life, you can still touch the pinnacle of heights.
Recently, the 10th marksheet shared by IAS officer Avneesh Sharan on social media is going to give a lot of inspiration to the students in this regard. It can be seen in this Bihar Board matriculation marksheet of 26 years ago that Avneesh got only 314 marks (44.5%) out of 700. He used to fail in maths. Despite passing in 10th class from third division, Avneesh became an IAS officer after passing the UPSC Civil Services Examination.
Everyone on social media is surprised to see the marksheet of this IAS officer who hails from Bihar. Social media users are telling this marksheet to be of great learning for the board examinees.
One user wrote that this proves that the degree is just a piece of paper. Another wrote that this proves that nothing is impossible. I got a lot of inspiration from your marksheet. One user wrote that the marksheet tells that students should not move towards 90 percent marks but towards their goal in life.
This tweet of Avneesh Sharan has been retweeted nearly 3000 times till Saturday morning. It has got more than 31000 likes.
Last year also in July 2021, a tweet by Avneesh Sharan went viral in which he gave his reaction to a post. Avneesh’s success story was told in this post. It was written in the post, ‘A boy got 44.5 percent in 10th, 65 percent in 12th and 60.7 percent in graduation. But with his positivity, hard work and dedication, he cleared the prestigious and challenging UPSC exam and secured 77th rank.
In response to this post, Avneesh wrote, ‘This post related to my academic performance is being shared on social media platforms. I am getting hundreds of messages to confirm this. Yes, I have got such marks in my school/college but this should not be used as an excuse for not studying and getting bad grades.’
In his next post, the IAS officer had said, ‘I had to write this post under compulsion. Many parents/teachers complain to me that children have stopped studying diligently. The logic of the children is that what is the benefit of studying now, they will study further. Some children have even started saying that to become an IAS, it is necessary to have low marks in school/college.
