Yes I have had disappointing results in my life. But that doesn't stop me. I believe failture is the pillar of success. I worked hard and did my best. Thus I got good results also! Even better. I will advice jack not to lose hope. He should follow his passion. As he will be interested he will be able to do better in his job life. Don't be disappointed. Work hard and you will be able to pull of a better result. Best of luck!

As you know this is a very important time for taking the right decision, you should take your time. Parents are much experienced than us so we should take their advice but you know yourself better so connect the dots and make the right decision technically. Make sure that you are happy with that. I think you got the point.

every person want that their parents will be happy by his activities.but our talent can perfect our activities.if we fill up our parents dream they will be fine but not happy because we can't give our best performance.so we should focus our target and anyhow complete it.success will come.Parents will be happy.

In this third world country like Bangladesh, we usually fulfill our parents dream without listening to our mind. But the result is not so good always. Because sometimes we are forced to take their decision and we go against our interest. And we study but we dont get the good resul. As it is complicated we should talk to our parents, and our parents should understand and listen to our mind. So can discuss and get to the right profession or subject where we show our interest. Same the thing jack also should do

Bad results aren't not only disappointing but also they give us the spirit and inspiration to do better to work more harder because one bad result is not the end. Bad results really helped me in my school life .It helped me to do better. Choosing profession is a personal decision because if you don't enjoy or like your profession you won't be able to excel in it. Excelling in a profession requires passion and no one can force you to have a specific passion. So all of us should decide and talk to our parents about our passion and our aim

I think Jack should follow his passion.He should not choose a career which he does not like.Jack likes history and language but he thinks that his parents will be disappointed.Jack should discuss the matter with his parents and choose the correct path for himself.

Most of our parents want us to be an engineer or a doctor. But it's not necessary to become this.There are a lot of oppurtunities in our life.Actually the person should deside by himself what he wants to become in life..And the path of his dream would be more easier if his parents and dear ones support him.

I think if someone's passion becomes their profession then it will be nothing but enjoyment to him/her. On the other hand, if someone chooses a profession without his/her concurrence it will be a burden for him/her. Everyone must understand and appreciate it so that a person can be successful in his/her career.

We should take some decisions in our life by ourselves. These decisions should not be made by our parents or anyone. We should aim at which we like the most. Then prepare ourselves to reach the goal of our life.

This is our life and a life is made of good and bad things. Everyone suffer in a bad time and a good time but we must utilize this time carefully or we will suffer in future. If we take the wrong decision it will suffer all our life. So jack should talk to his parents and choose the decision what he really wants and work hard for it.

Yes! I have had multiple disappointing results in my life. But I don't regret it anymore. Because I think those results pushed me to work harder than ever. It changed my thinking. I tried harder and thus I got good results also! I will say it to Jack as an advice that life has ups and downs. It's totally up to you how to utilise it. You should put more efforts in medicine. Hopefully you will be able to smile in the next result day. Moreover I think you should pursue your career with what you like. Not what your parents want. Come on man. Look. you like languages that's why you've got an A in French. I'm sure your parents will support you no matter what happens. Good luck!

That is surely a complicated situation for Jack. I can relate because my parents also want me to be a doctor which I don't want personally. Although I think he should think wisely about his own choice. Sometimes in life, we need to sacrifice a little to get something big.

sometimes our parents want us to do something that we really don't like...it often happens just because we are not free with our parents..if we tell them that what we want to do in future with an open mind, they will understand. we will have to tell them that we really don't have any interest in that work which they want us to do..and will have to tell about the work that we have interest..it's about our career and future..so we should take decision with proper discuss with our parents..that's all what I think..Thank you..

I thinks eveyone should chosse their aim accordingly to their likes and dislikes every parents have dreams with their kids but its our life we only got one if we fulfil our parents dream in this kife who will fullfil our dreams every parents should be supportive to their kids and they should give that freedom to fulfil their kids dream come true and even if we become what our parents want we will never be happy with our life we will regrade to the end of our life

Have you ever had disappointing exam results? What advice would you give to Jack?

A: Yes, I had had in math. But for me, I had changed my plan and took Bengali Literature. And I'm happy now with my subject.

So my advice for Jack is he should take the real dicesion that will help him in future. What subject he likes the most and is good at this, he should take the subject and carry on with that. And don't be upset about it more.

Like many students, sometimes I get bad results, I feel really disappointed, like the world is on my shoulder. But, I'm still calm enough to analyze the mistake that I've made. If I were Jack's friend, I would advise him :" Jack, you're a very talented student, just need better preparation and you'll get higher score"

Our lifes is up to us. Sometimes, there are some reasons which prevent us from doing what we really want. But I think that nothing is impossible if we keep trying and believing. The advice I would give to Jack is that no pain,no gain ang his dream will absolutely come true some day. :))

In my view it's awful when you really want to get THIS profession and your parents want you to get another profession. It is only your life and your own choose!
