via Daily Prompt: Reprieve
In the life of some students pursuing their degrees…. 35 is a very important number(predominantly In India)
35 is a very insulting number to the Geeks..  As a matter of fact…anything less than 100 is demeaning… They believe in the descending number value system…
Marks ranging from 100 backwards to 90 or 80…was the threshold.. A score below 80 was a virtual suicide for such folks…

I happened to be included in the cattle “cl-ass”… Who believed in the Ascending Number System in Exams… with a critical threshold number… That number was 35…

Anything below 35…was marked as FAIL (“F”)… which also initiated the screwed up state of affairs to follow…
