    A students, Where are you now and what are you doing in life?

    Growing up through kindergarten to high school and then college, my idea of getting straight A(s) have completely changed. I now see that sometimes it is ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE!

    When I was younger I'd try hard to follow what I saw on TV: Kids in movies and cartoons getting straight A(s), and I have to admit that I sorta endorse this because it helped me to at least be a B+ student in my earlier educational life. But Growing older I started to believe more and more that this was just a Myth.


    BUT If you're real and out there where are U NOW??

    I was a student once, and very bright. If you are, chances are sooner or later you will get a good grade, although you're right as teachers and their perceptions of excellent work vary. In this 21st Century, presentation is a plus, as well as hand-writing and 'going the extra mile' like a related piece of artwork.

    I would encourage my child to follow his/her star. We get to know what we are good at quite soon, and this may not be studies. Some can be quite practical, in fact. My son is a genius with I-pads and I-phones. He just is. Find your niche, as it may be better than endless hours of study. Pray over it, Dwight.

    P.S. I did a Hub for you, I believe. Probably my last one. Look for it.

    A students do have a great head start in life.  A students have better chances of obtaining scholarships & getting into a top tier high school & college/university.  They also have more opportunities to continue their post-tertiary education at graduate school levels.   

    Employers are more likely to hire A students because they have demonstrated a high level of engagement & work ethic.  Studies have proven that A students are at an advantage when it comes to obtaining more lucrative jobs.   A students are also selected into fast track careers in the corporate sector.   

    A students have the potential & do become inordinately successful in life.  The adage that A students work for C students is mostly hyperbolic conjecture.  C students for the most part will NEVER obtain the success levels that A students achieve.   C students only attain a modicum level of success if that.   A students have the educational & socioeconomic  advantages all around.
