    Recently I passed class 12th with 79.6%(commerce stream) from CBSE board. As there is a scholarship for those who scored 80%+ or above it, I am not eligible for that scholarship just because I scored 79.6 just 2marks less for 80. I also work hard. Many hard workers also getting scholarship for scoring 80,80.4 ,80.2 etc from college of 10,000 per year of graduation. If I scored 78,79 then I will not feel bad but as I scored 79.6 and scholarship is for 80%. So I am feeling bad disappointed. Please make me also eligible for that scholarship as its a rule also that after 5 round off system will happen. Now its upto you.
