Why Grades Matter (or how it relates to learning)

22 Sep

School. By law everyone must get an education right? It applies to almost every country making this a universal argument whether you go to school or get home schooled is up to you entirely (well parents have a say).

University. This is a choice for almost everyone (again unless parents are making you).

Learning. Entirely different. Totally different. And grades again totally different subject.

To learn is to understand or know something new and exciting (or boring).
To get an A or B is a matter of applying that learning to your studies

Get the picture?

Learning and Grades are connected! Shocker!
