IAS officer Nitin Sangwan, who is the Deputy Municipal Commissioner of Ahmedabad shared his standard 12 CBSE Board examination results on Twitter.
In his result from 2002 batch, the IAS officer scored only 24 in Chemistry, and overall passed by just 1 mark.
He went on to join IIT Madras, and then have an illustrious career.
In my 12th exams, I got 24 marks in Chemistry - just 1 mark above passing marks. But that didn't decide what I wanted from my life
Don't bog down kids with burden of marks
Life is much more than board results
Let results be an opportunity for introspection & not for criticism pic.twitter.com/wPNoh9A616
