Whats the point then if grades don't represent intelligence?Watch
Ah yes, that's the one.
Omg, did Mr White actually cheat!?! Jesus, u had such respect for him! Maybe Mr Black should kick his ass....actually no, please dont...i do not like violence **hides in the corner, eating his fudge**
Exams are designed to test an individual, so suceeding through any means without being caught is effectively being tested, correct?
As well, it's seriously enraging to be abused and laughed at by people you know you can run intellectual rings around, who try to bully you because they're jealous of your intelligence. So the only way to get back is to prove that you're better than the malicious little thugs by performing so spectacularly that you can't be discounted. I know, I did it.
Read the book "Ender's Game", by Orson Scott Card. For anyone in the position we've been in, it's uplifting stuff.
And yet, not all people are like those thugs. The older you get, the more people you will find in education that you are on the same wavelength as, or at least this was my experience. Most of the animals left at the end of GCSE. I despised school up until that point. I quite liked sixth form. I have just started at university (in Durham), and I am liking that as well.
On another note, socialising does not have to include casual sex, alcohol and drugs, or indeed any of the above. One of the fixtures of my week is a Tuesday night Scrabble session. (:
Many people are not worthwhile, but some are. Give them a chance.
There are so many more important things in life than grades please go and get a life.
People keep saying grades don't represent intelligence and that if you have 4 A's or whatever it doesn't mean anything about how clever you are. And that universities still won't accept you and stuff with 4 A's. Is this because the people that are saying it are jealous of people that get good grades? That's what I think.
Grades are the most important thing and they do represent how clever a person is. Do you think universities care if you have a social life? I don't. I think people who say "Oh but I have a life thats why I didn't get all A's" are stupid. Universities won't care about you having a social life they will just think you are a waster and care more about having fun than working.
And if grades aren't important then what is the point then? Answer me that? Why am I bothering to do A-Levels if they are useless and getting all A's doesn't mean anything? So i'm just wasting my time am I? Maybe I should just drop out then and look for a job if they are useless?
I hate it that people are undermining my efforts by saying my hard work at A-Levels is pointless and all A's doesn't mean anything. Yes I don't have a social life and am a loner and only concentrate on my grades and play computer games and stuff to relax, but universities won't care about this they only care about my grades. So shut up all the ones that say A's don't mean anything, you are just jealous thats all.
