Hello Group Members,
This is in continuation with what is wrong in higher secondary standard 12th in schools,Words from one of the suffering student,
I have studied under Gujarat board and know a few things about it which are not too flattering. Once you enter the secondary level, the first thing you realise is that teachers are not interested in teaching probably because they are not paid adequately. The next big shock is the textbooks, especially in the English medium. If you take them for right and mug them up like Gita, heavens save you in the exam. The board is actually smarter than Newton! If you are in class XII and have maths as a subject, you will always be confounded by the marks you get. You can get 80 marks even if you have attempted questions worth 40 marks. My advice to parents and students is to spend at least 12 hours praying. It may help.
