These days the suicidal tendencies among teenagers is increasing a lot due to constant pressure to perform in their academics .The children are told that if they will not perform up to the mark they will lag behind and will be losers in life. When this pressure from school and college cross the tolerance level or due to a small failure in a session or class, the students decide to take the extreme step of committing suicide.
One of the remedy to lower the rate of suicides of teenagers due to studies can be achieved by making more and more students aware of the concept of NIOS (national Institute Of Open Schooling. NIOS has the most updated syllabus as compared to any other board in India. In this board the students can study from home when ever the students has leisure time as well as reduce the pressure of school from the students .The student can even save his year by appearing in the board exam from NIOS the very same year so his time is saved and he does not lag behind from his friends and classmates.
In the past one month or so, at least a dozen cases of teenagers committing suicides have been reported across the state. Two students of intermediate and one of high school on march 25 took the adverse step under the tedious pressure to perform in the exam .There should be someone to tell these kids that this is not the end of the world don’t worry if don’t perform brilliantly or even if u fail, there are option such as NIOS which will help them to still be in the competition without lagging behind.
In another incident, Rashmi Reddy from Miyapur who committed suicide because she feared she did not do well in one of the papers had secured 95 per cent marks in her first year, underscoring the seriousness of the situation arising from academic pressure.
The National Institute of Open Schooling (N.I.O.S) (formerly National Open School (NOS) is an autonomous organization set up by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, in 1989 as per the Resolution issued vide No. f6-2/89-Sch. III dated 21.11.1989 to provide education up to pre-degree level to those who for one or the other reason could not make use of the formal education system.
