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.
SOME TEACHERS/LECTURES JUST DON'T GIVE A(s)!
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.
