State 9th!!! *Thumbs up*
from Visakhapatnam, AP, India
11th and 12th grades are the most crucial in any students life in India... especially a student who wants to do Medicine.
Well, I was always a very clever kid who never needed to work hard in her life to get good marks, but I came to 11th and it was a completely different story. There were kids studying for 12 - 15 hours a day with whom I just couldn't compete. I knew I was smarter then all of them, but I never needed to study for more than a day before my exam EVER in my life! I just wasn't used to studying so hard and my marks dropped to around 65%. I was under a lot of pressure.
2 years went by without any improvement. I knew if I studied half of what the others did I would be a topper, but I couldn't... And then about a month before my final (the big one which would decide my future), I read The Secret. That was the turning point. I decided that I wanted to get the 9th rank in the entire state. This was a state wide exam and there were 80,000 students appearing for it. I would thank god for it EVERY single day and it became a habit to me to scribble the number 9 over and over again whenever I was free. I would sit visualizing how happy my mum and dad and all my relatives and friends would be when the results are out. I wrote out this story and saved it on my computer too. :D
Well the results came out about 2 weeks after the exam. I knew what was going to be in there, I didn't even bother checking. My dad did, and he jumped about for around half an hour and called up every single relative and friend he had to brag about his genius of a daughter.
Thank you God!!! That was one hell of a miracle!! :D
