My students wrote the November summary exam.
One of them, younger in age, got more points than his group mates and was embarrassed to see it. He was not happy when he beat the big ones.
I congratulated him on the highest mark and he replied: “It was the easiest option and I just was lucky.”
“10+” is also the result of his dedication to study so I told him to put aside his excessive humility and be happy with his achievement.
Accept the well-deserved reward boldly, because otherwise, you show disrespect for your own skills.
