This is the symbol of deterioration of education in our society that we are busy in snatching ranks and positions in the name of education. There is great negative competition in the schools. Students are worrying about their ranks and positions instead of learning the particular concept or skill that is focused in the subject. You had better compete with yourself. If you have lesser marks in mathematics, try to secure this time more than previous. This is healthy competition. Never try to beat anyone. Beat your previous result instead.
