You know, I remember reading something that even undermined college itself. As it put college as simply used to finding a good job and if you work for long enough, grades and schooling become nearly insignificant as you have your resume to back you up. But of course, some jobs need credentials such as being a doctor and no resume can sum up to that.
I think it's purely a career choice thing here. You might need it, you might not, but I do know you can take a GED and get into college so maybe even the grades are insignificant for a vast majority that can't get into an Ivy League or higher degree college?
But either way, it's easy to finish High school and it isn't something you should turn down just because of how un-important it will be. It helps set good habits, at least? :)
It depends on the university you want to attend. Some have stricter requirements than others. Aside from meeting entry criteria though, my high school marks were not important for me at uni. I had to have certain marks to get in, but in terms of being able to cope with course material, what I had learned in high school didnt give me any advantage. My first year classes took everything right back to basics anyway, because so much of what I learned in high school had been simplified to the point it was almost incorrect.
Surely you will need to show your high school grades to get admission in a college. In my region i don't need to show the grades of elementary school but i had to show the high school grades for getting admission in college.
The higher the grade the more the possibility to get admission to a good college. In my region full free scholarship are given to the students who scored top grades in their high school .
They aren't hugely important. But i am graduating high school this year and i've learned that getting good grades help you get more scholarship money. and you have more opportunities than other students attending the same college as you, like honors programs, first choice of classes, ect. Grades aren't super important in high school, but getting good grades is a definite plus!
You're right. Haha, what you're saying makes sense. I should have been a bit more specific in my question, though. I was referring to good vs. okay vs. bad grades. I'm not settling for a GED haha.
I was reading some arguments on the Internet about how colleges look at SAT scores of your grades in classes a lot more and etc.
If you make F's all throughout school... no college (besides maybe a community college) will accept you.
If you want to go to a good college, you need to make good grades to prove you can do well in college.
I mean, if you don't care about your education enough to try and make good grades in school, why would you deserve to go to college? If you care about going to college, you should care about getting good grades.
well even later on, they will probably still look at your grades, plus with the economy being so bad, i know jobs are getting stricter with the people they hire so it is best to get a college degree asap.
Ah but you see, you need a college degree to get started on getting good credentials for your resume so it is important!
Grades show if a student is capable of taking further study, so yet they are important.
