As a student, what do you care more about, grades or learnings?
Such a wonderful question... I have recently watched an award winning movie based on life on engineers... The moral of the movie was - "Study to learn and not for grades - If you will follow this rule then success will automatically come towards you "
..both...the grade would give me an indication that i'm understanding and learning....
I hated the grade aspect..
Learning is where it is at. Most of my grades were because the teacher liked me, I'm not sure how much good that did for me.
Learning should be most important, but, whatever you do or don't know, if you cannot show future employers some qualifications, your knowledge is unlikely to be very helpful.
There are exceptions. There are employers, who will look past the pieces of paper to the individuals beyond, but most do not have the time.
The truth is that grades and qualifications should reflect learning. That's not always the case, I know, but it should be the aim
I care more about learning. However, grades and accolades are important because it is how others judge you. You need that sheet of pretty paper to get a good job right? I still enjoy reading books just for the sake of acquiring more knowledge.
I seem to care mostly about the grades, but I seem to automatically learn along the way - well, I suppose I have to in order to get the good grades ...
Making it to the top is not worth anything if I have not learnt to be a person of learning, character, discipline and values. I believe if I have the rest I will make the grades if not today , then someday! Learning from every situation, circumstance and person helps me change, adapt and grow.... I learn every moment of my day!
I have considered myself a failure all my life. I did not pass my ll plus.... I was not forgiven. I was afraid of exams and left school at 14, and have always dropped out of everything before exam time comes....
I was invited to take my fetac level 3. It was a guy who was the age of my son taking the class..... I am self taught on computer, so learnt a lot. Even though he refused to use the word exams because he understood my fear i think. The others will no doubt pass, but i have finished my ahead of time. Some have English as their second language
I am pleased to report out of 20 of us, i am the only one who has passed all five exams, i don't care about the grade, i have passed an exam for the first time. This fear has held me back so much, I sometimes wonder how i have even got through life this far ha ah
next exam i take, i will be lookiing for real ly good grades
Bravo!! Now throw that fear out ...you can do much more!!
Wow! Congratulations. That's a step towards overcoming tests. For all we know, everyday is a test of character, of everything. Bravo!
I intend to, and guess what i absolutely new you would comment, you are a star, i so love you
i can even do hugs like you do, i really am getting there.
At first I looked at the grades and that's all I really tried to get good at. But now, as a senior in high school, I'm starting to realize that haveing papers saying that I'm smart is not going to help me out in the future. Yes, an employer might hire me because I had a perfect gradepoint average, but its not going to help me if I don't learn anything.
Obviously, there are assignments that are useless, so to speak, because they are just busy work, so I usually only try to get good grades on those busy work assignments. But for everything else, I try to learn at least one thing and remember it by the time I'm done.
I hated school because there was so much pressure on getting good grades and it took away all my love of learning. I was learning to pass and then forgetting all of it. Today, I am learning what really interests me and that is happening naturally. I am amazed to discover how little I remember from my school years, how everything that I had learnt evaporated. I am helping my daughters understand concepts of universe and learning myself, too, to be able to explain to them.
To answer original question, I used to study for grades - result is that I hardly remember the stuff. Things I love to learn about, I am passionate about are a part of me thus I am knowledgeable about them.
well. i love all the comments on this post, and i really think Learning should be the focus. and when you have learned you will definitely make the grades. although it doesn't happen with everyone.

What's the best way to get your kids to get good grades?I have been trying for about two years to keep my three daughters on track with their grades. But it seems like I am always battling to get them to even care!

How do you reward your children for good grades? Or do you?Do you think that paying children is a good option, rewarding them another way, or do you feel that this is their responsibility so it is not necessary to provide a reward? Other thoughts?

I praise my children when they have good grades in school. As a parent I like seeing the majority of A's and B's on their progress reports. Rewarding them for good grades is also a reward for me as well.

I just bumped into three former high school classmates within a span of two months. One was a C student who was told by the high school guidance counselor that she was definitely not college material and should have a vocational career. The second student was a straight A...

I have often wondered about this. I personally have no education beyond that of High School. I do not hold any special qualifications and think of myself as being average in intelligence. I do read a lot and pay attention to as much as I can as a habit. If there is text I read it, even a cheesy ad...

Teachers often complain about low pay; the claim to be overworked and under-compensated. The say that they deserve to be paid more, since they are responsible for teaching the next generation. Yet, when the subject of the ever falling standards and performance of students comes up, they rarely have...
