I was a very bright child. Class 10 and 12 ruined me

Anyways, this story is when I was in class 7. I was one of those nerdy students who used to mug up everything and when friends asked for help, I used to reply by saying: This is the only part I didn't study 


So, we had a Social Studies exam of 10 marks and as usual, I mugged up everything. Unfortunately, I didn't get the time at all to practice drawing a solar system.

On the exam day, when I saw the first page of the question paper I was brimming with a smile because I knew I would score an all 7. The second page gave me a chill.

The question said to draw the diagram of a solar system (3 marks- Maximum mark question by the way


I didn't know whether to cry or laugh. 🤣😭 Isn't it relatable? When you know you haven't studied and the same question pops up in the exam! Still trying to figure out how do teachers do that!

Anyways, I wrote the answers to all 7 questions and still had 15 minutes remaining. 

I thought to myself what do I have to lose. It'll be a crappy diagram, why not draw it? I might score a 7.5 at least and so I made random lines and circles and named them.


After a week, I get my test book and in my head, I knew it'll be a 7 but the moment I open the page, I saw a flashy 10/10 staring right back at me.

I jumped to the last page of my test book and saw 'Very Good' written beneath my diagram.

This was years back yet I still remember what I learned from that 7 to 10 experience.

1. Execute without caring for results

2. Don't give up. (If I hadn't drawn that diagram, I would have scored a 7 instead of a 10)

3. Efforts will bring in results

4. Never underestimate yourself

5. Be observant (I didn't practice drawing the Solar System but I carefully observed the diagram)
