Well getting failed in an examinations is perhaps the most sorrow thing which a student would ever experience. During an academic secession students has to go thorough several such examination out of which many students fails. If a student fails then he or she has to retake the examination. In those conditions it is vary hard to have a chat about these with is or her parents. Not only this but also the failure students do not want to talk about this with their friends. This causes depression and in some cases it may lead to a suicide. So a student must take their study seriously and try to pass not only the academic examination but also the other examination which life takes from them.

I'm not sure if I can agree with that. It solely depends on the student. For example, take me. I failed for the first time at a exam and I felt awful. (2 weeks ago) But I can't say that I would have had a good feeling when I took the exam. I already thought that I might fail. And I did.. Sure I felt bad and retaking a exam seems to me even harder than the first time. Mainly because you fail the first time which makes it even harder to learn for the second time. At last it did for me.. I knew that I had to learn all those things so that I would pass the exam but I couldn't get myself to learn.. I learned barely anything new. Yet I passed and was awfully happy about it. Failing is a "nice" reason to actually learn even more. At last for me it is. Because I don't want to ever retake a exam again. As for the fail itself.. it doesn't really depend solely on the student. It also depends on the lecturer. For example.. the one lecturer that let me fail the first time around seems to have a funny way of rating our work.. some people say/write barely anything yet pass while others have a full page of info yet fail because the lecturer thinks that its not enough.. So I wouldn't really blame just the student for failing a exam.. As for the student not wanting to tell it to their family and friends.. it also depends on the student. Whenever someone in our class fails he just tells it us.. its not like there would be anything he could do about it anyway.. Heck, when I failed I just called my parents and told them.. I much rather have them know it and support me than lying to them and saying that I passed.. For example.. me and my room mate are a perfect example. He has a lot of problems with the exams and seems to fail at most of them. Yet he tries again and passed it at the second or third time.. And he doesn't seem to be too upset about it. I mean.. yes hes upset just like I was when I failed but its not like he would become depressed and start crying or anything like that.. he just thinks of a way how to pass it next time. The only difference between me and my room mate is that he didn't want to tell his parents that he failed.. heck, he said that he passed yet it took him several months to pass one of the exams.. Simply put.. its true that a student should take his studies seriously but even than it doesn't depend solely on him/her..

Hello sanjeev, Failing in an examinations, is definately most sorrow thing. if a student fails in exams is difinately his own mistake. 1. he should be aware with the time table. 2. he should be aware with the syllabus. 3. he/she should start preparations once, is aware with the syllbus and time table. 4. If he/she is poor in any subject, have tuitions to come over the subject. A student should consider all this points, while having there examinations, never fail the exam. coming to the point, students suicuide to the failure, is not right. after trying all the above and student fails, he should try second time to over come failure.

Being a student myself, I know how it feels. If you are a good student and if you fail in one of the exams it feels as if the world has come to an end. Being in school, I have never failed so far(touchwood!). Though even if I do...I will try my best to take it in a positive way and prepare better for the next time.

Hi there, sanjeev! Yeah, failure in examinations is so common for majority of students; in fact, most students would have failed at least one exam or test in their lives. I myself have never failed any test or exam in primary or secondary school, but come university, I failed twice in my final two years before graduating. It really hit me hard, but I took it in a positive way, viewing it as a chance to familiarise myself with the exam material again which would definitely help me when I start working (I studied Pharmacy by the way ). But yeah, we must always study hard all the time to increase the chances of passing, but even so we also need to bear in mind that there is a possibility that we might not pass too even if we have studied hard. Like my parents always say, "Prepare for the worse but hope for the best".

Exam is the part of the life this not apply for the students but also to any human. We have to face them weather we like them or not. If you fail in any exam the best way to avoid in future is to analyze it and to analyze it other person Because they see the things from other angle. So it is always advisable to interact with other for the reason of failure.
