Go out on a street and ask any women what are the most important subjects her school children to focus. The standard answer is ‘English & Maths’. This will be almost told like a mantra. It looks like subjects like arts, literature, history etc are meant for less bright students.

May be it’s because of the perceived ‘high value’ of the scientific education in the job market.

Pupils have been given additional private tuitions to reinforce their science knowledge to succeed in competitive examinations. Kids are literally harassed by parents (moms!) to do well. Many be this obsession is because India is a developing country.

Your ideas, experience at home…..

What to do ?

India is a over populated country with too many intelligent people, and hence there is huge competition. and trust me, if u r good in solving maths, then, u can be good in competitive exams, and can get admission in colleges and for a course of ur choice.

All said and done.... all the competitive examinations in India can be cracked easily if you are good at maths ! Even the services examinations (conducted for jobs) have major portions related to mathematics.. so ........
