May 29, 2007 14:00 IST

With the 10th and 12th standard examination results around the bend, we're guessing there are a lot of students fighting off nervousness and anxiety.

In the wake of poor performances, several youngsters sink into depression and even harbour suicidal tendencies. Poor grades that do not allow for the preferred career choice become too heavy a burden, and they cave to pressure.

In order to help young students hope for the best and prepare for the worst, we invite readers to share similar experiences and opinions regarding examination results.

What if you don't get the desired marks? What if your parents are expecting more of you? What if the grades obtained are insufficient when it comes to your preferred choice of further education?

If you were once in a similar situation and managed to pull through, share your story with others -- who knows, you just may be saving a depressed teenager's life.
