E.g. if someone had all Es at A-level, or didn't have a degree, or attended a very low-ranked uni, or did a course like Film Studies, or failed GCSE English with no extenuating circumstances, would you judge them for it?

Curious to see how much the TSR population would do so, and in what circumstances :cookie:

Judging one by academic succession is merely to be constituted for positivity.
It's wrong in every way.
One could be failing their academics due to mental suffering aggravated by recent/past traumatic experiences - post traumatic stress disorder.
It has happened to me, although it was quite the opposite.
Mine had driven me towards academics to an further extent.

No... I don't judge people based on grades? They don't define the person. :erm:

Sorry to hear that :hugs:

True that, I wonder if most of TSR do though.

I judge people on where their heart seems to be... almost entirely. Doesn't matter how ostensibly smart anyone is.

The father of one of my friends has no degree and, like, one A-level and he developed a new kind of medical laser. Now he flies once a month to the States to lecture at Harvard medical school.

Go figure.

Well, I think he worked in other areas for a few years first, but then he set up his own company to produce these lasers, yeah.

Given the amount of STEM snobbery there is (as an example) on this site etc. I wouldn't be surprised if there are quite a few!

As long as you're not a skrub, I don't care what your grades are.

Usually, idiots have the grades to prove they are idiots - it comes with the territory. Nice people don't need grades to be nice. Unfortunately there are many clever people with little tact, too much ego and few social skills et voila, I present the modern idiot.

I agree with you there. :lol: Especially since A levels were dumbed down slightly.

No. You can be smart without being getting good grades and frankly, more than grades, that's the kind of knowledge that really matters. Street smarts and knowledge of how the world and people work and stuff. Could only get those things from experience.

Only a being of juvenile naivety would demean another's intelligence by virtue of their grades having endured education themselves.

Grades are achieved by short term retention and arbitrary time management; they are by no means an adequate measure of intellect.

A person is worth a lot more than just their academic ability.
