Student from Swat commits suicide after not performing well in exams
This tragic incident is concerning for both educationists and pyschologists alike who have urged parents not to pressurize their children.
In a disturbing incident, a student from Swat committed suicide. The police, after conducting investigations, has claimed that the boy was upset over his performance in exams.
The student named Ayub Khan was a resident of College Chowk Matta. He shot himself after his first paper in the ongoing Secondary School Certificate Examinations.
This tragic incident is concerning for both educationists and pyschologists alike who have urged parents not to pressurize their children. Building up peer pressure and expecting them to always perform exceptionally well is a burden on patients who cannot cope with the competition.
It is also believed that the way exams are conducted only make the students cram for higher grades instead of helping them grasp concepts.
As per a report published by World Health Organization, more than 15,000 suicide cases are recorded in Pakistan every year. Most of these cases are due to burden of studies and exams.
