I failed IIT JEE. Got an abysmal score in BITSAT, AIEEE and Maharashtra CET. Its not that I had not tried hard, and I won't be playing the blame games on anyone but the truth is "I had failed".
I was very disappointed and so were my parents, and I felt somewhere I have let them down. My father had to use his contacts to get me an admission at an engineering college, and I was low on confidence.
