In India student aids are available for—SCs, STs, BCs, OBCs, women, Muslims, and other minorities. Only about 0.7% of student aids in India is based on merit, given the grossly inadequate representation of above-mentioned categories in employment and education due to historic, societal and cultural reasons

I will be appearing for my college entrance exam this year, and i'm aiming for top 2 uni for cs branch (that's kind of like the 'mentality' here). i am academically doing great and expect to get 2nd/3rd best one without using any kind of reservation and if i use it, i will easily get the top one and i really want it. but here is the thing.....i'm kind of an egoistic and ambitious person(if that's the right word for it) and all those who use resevations face some sort of backlash and all their achievements get downplayed, and i know i will feel guilty the all the time that dont belong there and idk how will the behaviour of others will be. Heck even i use to talk shit about those using reservations until i knew i was eligible for one and i personally think they are completely useless and promote further discrimination but the top college is just too good to give up and if i get the chance why not use it? My parents are of the opinion that it should be used but i'm absolutely confused what to do and i have one day to decide any kind of opinions are welcome
