Grades do not entirely show how smart you are, amirite?

Top Comment

Street smart is one thing but grades are another. Grades help you get a job. Street smart helps you not get beaten up. If you get a job, you get money, so you won't have to live on the street. Now which is more important?

I've always say: "Grades just show how much of a good student you are" So we suck as students, but that doesn't mean we are not smart :D at least I like to think that

That is a false notion, how do you define intelligence then?

well my dear friend, the way i define intelligence is the way to make choices in your life, those that can achieve things because they are truly intelligent, they may not know the whole decimals of pi, or the capital of each state, but they know how to make things, they go through difficult times making smart choices. There are two kinds of intelligence. The one books teach you, and the ones you learn from life. Now tell me, someone that didnt attend school isnt necessarily stupid, am i right? :)

i'm an average student. But I have seen people burning their **** off in order to get an A and in the end they dont learn much. I know stuff, I may suck at math, but I consider myself intelligent even when I get a C now and then. :) that's the way I roll, i wouldnt call anyone stupid or intelligent based on his or her grades...

It's 'Oh, I was just making fun of your grammar'. Uppercase letters, they're your friends.

You didn't offend me. It's just that I found it a bit ironic, not to mention slightly hypocritical, that you were making fun of Blackie's grammar without proper grammar yourself. No big deal. Is there anything wrong with your caps lock key though? You might want to try that instead.

It's okay. No worries. Everyone has crappy grammar every once in a while. Especially when it's not in their first language.

They just show how hard you work in class, studying, and doing homework... :) Which is EXACTLY why I finished this year with a B, two A's, and a D+. Lol

Not always. I hardly did any work, and I graduated high school with a 3.95. They show some combination of how easy your classes were, how much work you did, how smart you are, and how much grade grubbing you did.

Grades sometimes have to do with the difficulty of the school. Getting an A in one school could be much harder than getting one at another school. That is why they created the SATs

i have an IQ of 143 (and im considered 'really smart' by kids in my classes. i help them alot) yet i still only get B's and C's mostly. im not stupid. i just dont study my **** off for anything and dont pay atention in class. like i REALLY dont pay attention. not how other kids "dont pay attention" just to be cool.

Me and my friend rook the same AP course and had different teachers. Mine was blow off, we NEVER did work. His was study, read, assignments every day. Although we ended with A's, he obviously was more intelligent in the subject. Grades do not measure intelligence.

I agree, all it does is tell how much effort you put in to what you think is important.

I've made one B in my entire life (4th grade science. I'm still pissed at my teacher for that, since science is now one of my best subjects), but I am SO incredibly slow sometimes.

I found the kids in my Honors English class to be more ignorant and insufferable than the kids in my lower-level Math course.

I hate overachievers so much, all they care about is winning. Those people disgust me to no end.

If you had an IQ of 145 or something, you could turn in what would be an A for a normal student and still get marked down because the teacher 'expects more from you.' My dad has a 160 something IQ and got in trouble a lot and had bad grades.

Well there is a difference between intelligence and wisdom. You could have bad school marks but you could also be the most clever one of them all

true. it just shows how lazy you are (or not)

lol I can't stand know-it-alls or people who think they're the best. There is nothing wrong with trying, altough I know I for one am quite lazy. But even if you don't try that hard you can get good marks. However, you do need to try at least a little. School grades can help quite a bit when you get out into the world.

Of course they don't. Otherwise the kid with a 90+ average in my class would not pour sulphuric acid on his hand because he didn't believe it would hurt.
