Relationship Between School Grades (Academic Success) & Career Success


Hello guys! Sorry for the long break, I had my final exams and work to focus on. Thank goodness that’s over now (the school part). Today, I will be talking about the relationship between the grades someone gets in school and their career prospects.

When I was growing up my teachers used to give me the impression that academic success was crucial to becoming relevant in the society. As much as I would like to believe that, it’s not true. If you take a good look at our society today, a significant percentage of those at the helm of affairs are not scholars.

According to Business Insider, ‘A’ students are more likely to work in organizations owned by ‘B’ students as managers because they are meticulous and tend to focus on one area at a time.  This discovery got me pondering for days, why this is so. After digging deep into the subject, I realized that the reason ‘B’ students become entrepreneurs is owing to the fact that they spend less time with their books and more time doing extracurricular activities as well as venturing into possible entrepreneurial ventures.

Hence, ‘B’ students would have been A students if they studied more and didn’t neglect their school work. Also, I believe that some B students are as smart smarter than A students as A students. Afterall, ‘A’ students are just book smart.

What do you think?
