New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday congratulated his "young friends" for clearing the class 10 and 12 CBSE board examinations and said those not happy with the outcome should remember that one exam does not define who they are.
"Congratulations to all my young friends who have successfully passed their Class X and XII CBSE examinations. Wishing them the very best for their future endeavours," the prime minister tweeted.
Modi said for those who "aren't happy" with their CBSE Class 10 and 12 results, "I want to tell them — one exam doesn't define who you are".
"Each of you is blessed with numerous talents. Live life to the fullest. Never lose hope, always look ahead. You will do wonders," he said.
