    He could have taken up a technical course and started working and could have completed his education privately. In US all work and pay their fees only in India it is liberal.
    However ending up one's life is not a concrete solution. May his soul rest in peace.

    The problem is good companies will only hire bright students and average students will only be lucky if they can find a decent job after graduation, irrespective of their other talents...so there is parental pressure to perform well in exams and students cannot disappoint their parents.

    A young blooming life lost, is heart breaking.... Parents should understand that instilling pressure to perform, can have negative implications... The period especially after examinations, is highly stressful n volatile... Counseling is the most neglected, part of our curriculum.... Abroad counseling centers n helpline are available.... here parents, teachers wake up only after a tragedy !!! RIP....

    Parents should be more careful & vigilant during their children exam & results, especially on those who has difficulty in studies and have poor grasping power.

    Church / schools organizes Career guidance program once in a year. They should also keep a class where they explain and convince how to overcome stress during similar situations. Life is Important than the education.
    RIP Cristal

    The number of suicide cases rising daily.

    Parents please be friends to your children. Involve yourself in their activities , in the fields of Spritual, Character and studies. Today, parents find it necessary to send them for private classes by paying huge amount with high expectation. Instead get someone who can come to your place and take care of the studies if you desire. You will surely know the updates. When we were studying, if any child is going for tuition means not so good. Our teachers and Lecturers teaching us so well, there was no need.

    If the child has failed, please sit with the child and convince him or her, that this is not the end. Its fine. Do not show your anger instead love and care. Encourage them that this is the beginning to do better and achieve the best results.

    Also pray for them.

    Young people have always faced many distractions, preventing them from focusing on studies.

    But now, with the social media, the distractions are far greater.

    To make it worse, the attachment to the social media can force young people to go to bed late and lose sleep. With sleep deprivation, paying attention to studies becomes near impossible.

    Hope the parents show greater understanding towards their children.

    Sorry to note this case of the young man.
