    How do you people guess the marks you will get in optional? How can you be sure whether the teacher gives you 50% or 30% for an answer? More so when there are multiple teachers checking the papers (=> high subjectivity) and the fact that your paper might be preceded by many top scorers (=> even a right answer might not be that appealing to the teacher).
