The teacher was in the class alone when a student walked towards her.

When the teacher saw the student, said: “Did you know you got nine in your exam? You are the only one in the class who failed this test.”

The ashamed student replied: “Can you give me one mark so that I wouldn’t fail?”

The teacher replied firmly: “It will not be possible to give you one mark. I gave you what you deserved. I’m not punishing you, but I just want you to try harder and study more for the next exam.”
