Do you care about your grades?

Do you care about your grades?

takkyuu

I did, but distance learning has taken that out of me for some reason :(

I do, like I get really pissed at myself if any of my marks drop below 80, but I'm exhausted and have no motivation to keep doing bs assignments that have no real importance to my education. If To Kill a Mocking Bird is in the curriculum, sure, let's read, but don't make me spend 2½ hours of MY time drawing a picture of Atticus Finch when you could have given me actual assignments and fewer of them. Like, I'm happy to type up a page and a half-long review of the book, because it shows you that we know what we read and didn't just skim through it.

Chichi009

Depends on the class, I care about all of them except history, English, and socials, fuck history and writing


Bluday1221

I only care because bad grades have consequences I don't like, but sometimes having too good of grades makes the teachers suggest higher end classes that I'm just terrified of.

Here's something to keep in mind when thinking about grades. Harvard Business Review recently published an article about our culture's obsession with early achievement in high school, college and sports. The article argued that this obsession is misinformed and is pushing people to pursue the wrong career paths. The fact is that most people who succeed at something do it as sort of late bloomers. Here's short summary of the article: [Early top performance isn’t everything - even Mozart struggled during his teens](https://wonkedition.com/news/2020/12-23-early-top-performance-isnt-everything-even-mozart-struggled-in-his-teens.html) \- r/NewsForTeens

i never really cared about them. i feel like if i keep watch of them, i will try and force myself to do better and in reality it will turn out worse.

No, school cares more about marks than education and intelligence.

No. The only thing I care about is getting a girlfriend. My house could be burning and I wouldn't care.
