Scoring high marks in 12th board (arts, commerce or science): Understanding the situation

Let us understand the situation here. If you score high marks in 12th board examination, you will be able to get the course of your choice. You’ll become more likely to get the college or university of your choice too! This is because of the fact that your name will feature higher in the merit list (due to high marks in 12th board).

Scoring average marks in 12th board (arts, commerce or science): Understanding the situation

Let us check out the situation we’ve in our hands this time. If you score average marks in 12th board examination, you’ll likely be able to get the course of your choice. But you won’t likely be able to get into the college of your choice. If you want to get into the college of your choice, you may have to compromise on the course/academic program front! You’ll have to settle for a course that ranks lower in the ‘demand list’.

What you are likely to getThe course of your choice, and a college that ranks well below your choice OR a course that ranks well below your choice and the college of your choice
What you are not likely to getThe course of your choice and the college of your choice (that ranks high in the demand list)

 

Scoring less marks in 12th board (arts, commerce or science): Understanding the situation

Let us analyze the final situation. If you’ve scored low marks in 12th board examination, it doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to get admission after 12th at all! It simply means that you won’t be able to get the course of your choice. You won’t be able to get the college of your choice too.

What you are likely to getA course and college that ranks average or below-average in the demand list of the academic year
What you are not likely to getA good course and college that ranks high in the demand list

 

In this case, you’ve the following options –

  1. Lower your expectations about course and college. Choose a course that is not high on the ‘demand list’ among students. Choose a college that fares average or below-average in the ‘demand list’
  2. Take a year drop, prepare well for the board exam again and reappear for the exam next year. You’re likely to score better the next time
  3. Go for donation-based admission process instead of merit-based admission process. You’ll likely be able to get the college and course of your choice

 

In this post, I’ve listed down some courses, which usually rank in the average or below-average range of students’ ‘demand list’. In other words, seats of these courses often remain vacant (typically in average or below-average ranked colleges).

 

So, if you’ve scored low marks and are unwilling to take a year drop, you’ll have to settle for the above-mentioned options.

 

Come, let us check out the list of courses for low scoring students now. Here it is –
