Students who came out successful in the SSC examination this year with flying colours are in fear of being denied admission to the colleges of their choice.

For one thing, seats in country's good institutions are disproportionately small to the number of students even with GPA -5, let alone the other students. And for another, there is no chance for taking admission test for them to prove their worth to be a student of a renowned college.

It seems that the recording-breaking success has become ironically disheartening for high-achievers. Their jubilation did not last long as soon as they realised the irony of their stunning success. Now they are in limbo.

To my mind, arranging admission test and introducing double shifts at renowned colleges as a quick fix can raise their hopes.

So, let their dream come true. They might live up to their reputation as they move into the higher education arena.
