    May be i am replying you very late, but i somehow want to share my view about your comment. I am really shocked to see your perception on below average students, talent is something different from the marks you score. please dont underestimate anyone based on their marks alone. i appreciate your concern for the agri university for not getting enough admission but at the same time you should feel happy that even the below average students now get the chance to study whatever they want and shine in their domain
