FAQ on Why did you score less in class 12?
Should I say that I was not interested in studies directly?
No, saying that studies bore you would be wrong. Instead you can use reasons to state why studies did not interest you more than other activities. State the benefits of the activities apart from studies.
Will my class 12 scores hamper the chances of getting selected?
Not really. The interviewers already know about your scores and yet shortlisted you for the interview. All they want is to test your confidence and reasoning capacity. Answer honestly and voila! you are done.
What if they don’t believe my reasons and reject me?
The interviewers will never reject you on the basis of marks if your personality and presence of mind stands up to their mark. Give a valid reason for your scores and substantiate them with examples or insights. This will help you to gain momentum.
