Why a good grade is so important? Or Why they are considered as criteria to know about a student intellect? Well grades are important in some aspect. But grades are just a secondary opinion; I mean the knowledge is more important!
Grades just gives an basic idea about how much knowledge he/she peruses as a student. It doesn’t explain about an individual in brief. There are various factors if a student does/doesn’t score good, that he may be good at mug up the chapters and doesn’t know anything about the stuff, Or may be the person knows about the stuff but cant able to memorize the definitions the way they are!
Let’s consider this
- Nikhil is an underwriter. He works for a very well known company. Graduated from A grade college and obviously has a good score record throughout. He earns a heck of amount that’s enough to satisfy his luxuries not need.
- Raj is a successful actor with poor educational background but great acting skills. Has given a few blockbusters.
They both seems stable and successful in their respective fields BUT
Mr. Nikhil always wanted to be a writer. Due to the responsibilities towards the family he never got a chance to pursue for his dreams. Educational background do got him into a satisfactory income except doesn’t help him to peruse what he actually WANTS!!!!!!!!
Mr. Raj may be a successful actor but he doesn’t have any basic idea about the operations, turns out his secretary HAS BEEN FOOLING him and talking advantages of his cash flow to meet her luxuries. Mr. Raj is too dump to understand the error but a good actor!
Here we can see the importance of knowledge. Even if Nikhil doesn’t want to be a underwriter he earns a decent income and he can still persue his dreams in his later life by saving up. But Raj despite of his good acting skills he lacks the basic knowledge and he may never find out about the fraud. I think the things are pretty clear here!
Let’s look at another instance:
As youth (students) these days are in influence of the following proverb said by Thomson Edison, “Tomorrow is my exam, but I don’t care because a single sheet of paper can’t decide my future.” Students motivate themselves by this quotes during the exam as the proverb has said by one of the famous scientist. But what they tend to neglect is Edison’s HARDWORK and that is the only KEY!
There are many people with good educational background that ain’t as successful as the students from average educational background and VICE VERSA. For people wanted to achieve something has Passion for their dreams, Determination throughout and willingness to word hard. They did not mug up, they dug up!
No one knows you better than yourself. You know who you actually are! So pull it together and work hard to chase your dreams. You don’t become successful in a day. It’s a series of challenges. If Good grades is the first step towards your dreams then you should get it. And if you think good grades are irrelevant for your dreams…………(You don’t want to end up like Mr.Raj) then learn to gain knowledge, learn to know the world you live in.
