]12345Over these past few years, the education is structured in a manner that a student’sacademic performance is assessed using a grade system, which is ranged from A as thehighest rank to the lowest rank of G. The grade hierarchy system is given to students tomeasure how well they can understand and master the context of a subject. However,most students, parents and teachers strongly believe that getting as many As as possiblewould make a person become “successful”. The question arises, can getting lots of Asmould a successful person? (Insert stand and thesis statement here: In my opinion, …Let us analyse this issue in terms of ____________, __________ and ____________. )There is no law or legislation implemented for a person to be successful only if he or she had glorious results in examinations. A person can also be successful byunleashing novelties. There are uncountable students that excelled in theiexaminations, with straight A’s grasped in their hand, firmly; also there are alsostudents who failed in their examinations, really terribly. But the so-called “failures”have high potential of creativity, yet to be unveiled; and the remarkable creative ideasmake them to be one in a million. For instance, Bill Gates, one of the most successfulsoftware designers in the histories. He had a famous quote, “I failed in some subjects inexam, but my friend passed in all. Now he is an engineer in Microsoft and I am theowner of Microsoft”. The momentum of this quote is very strong and firm – it isdefinitely a silly mistake to say that a person will be led to star way boulevard even if they are excellent scorers in the examinations.In a similar manner, a person can be successful if they had passion in what theydo. Due to various pressures, mostly from parents and peers, students had a mindsetthat they must score as many A’s as possible to make them successful in their life.They had a mindset that they must be lawyers, professors, doctors and so on to makethem successful in their life. So to approach these careers, they are to garner as manyA’s as they can. But that could be untrue. As an illustration, Shimmy, who is a famousdancer, was used to be a lawyer graduate. People may argue that perhaps she could notfind a law-related job after she graduated. But the fact is, being a lawyer, is her father’sdream, not hers! Her dream is that she could dance and could exhibit her dance to theworld. Her passion is on the stage, not on the court. She is determined that she wouldnot be a successful lawyer, and she was right! So what about all those A’s?On top of that, the number of A’s obtained is definitely not a ruler to measurewhether a person is successful or not. Thanks to the education system, students aremolt into reading and exam machines to get A’s. Sad but true, a large percentage of A’s scorers are late bloomers. They chunk in a lot of information from the textbooks or reference books at the eleventh hour, and regurgitate all the information when it comesto examination. But does that make them a successful learner? Human memory power has limitations. So the A’s obtained by the student may not be genuine. They fit to beknown as exam machines rather than successful youngsters.In a nutshell, it is definitely not a good idea to determine whether a person issuccessful based on the number of A’s garnered in examinations. There are morecrucial aspects as it does not portray one’s attitude in studies.510152025303540
