    I Don'T Think They Do

    Charles Darwin "was considered by all his masters and his father, a very ordinary boy, rather below the common standard of intellect." Yet his studies are known and studied throughout the world. Isaac Newton never did well in school yet he is regarded as one of the most...

    It really doesnt! Its just a letter

    or a number or a word! Doesnt show all your effort nor what you deserve! With exams it all depends how you are on the day you got your exam! It also depends on the level of determination, motivation and how well you thoroughly understand that subject! As well as the questions...

    You Are Only As Smart As You Think You Are

    In many instances, knowledge and education is mistakenly understood alike. Many naive minds have thus remained unaware although well-schooled and educated. Such specimens can be very easy to teach, but such specimens are horridly bad learners on their own. In school, we don't...

    I Believe Intelligence Is Difficult To Measure.

    I believe intelligent people usually get good grades, but let's be honest. Often times, classes are usually easy enough that anyone can get a good grade. I believe that good grades are rather a reflection of dedication and responsibility.

    Grades Decided Through Determination

    Here's the thing. I've been called "smart" all throughout my school years. Even in college, people will glare at me or shake their heads when the class gets test scores back. When they find out I got a high grade they say "It's because you're smart". No. I'm sorry, but I MUST...

    Examinations

    Exams are there for a reason. It isย  a yardstick to measure how we perform at a given time. It is not an overall or general degree of our levels of intelligence but, in the right direction. Some are not very good at putting their points across in spoken word or even written word...

    I Know They Don't

    My performance in school was remarkably average. I got a lot of C's and B's.ย It drove my teachers crazy 'cause they'd listen to me talk or read the stuff I wrote in my free time; it was incredibly clear that I had the brains to be better than a C student.ย  But I never was.I...

    Grades Can Be Misleading...

    Straight As, mediocre grades or even bad grades... ...not always indicative of one's intelligence. I've seen students with excellent grades who are as intelligent as a box of rocks (that's mean, I'm sorry). I've seen students who struggle to pass a spelling test who could be my...

    I think that tests at school don't show the

    teachers who are the smart kids and the "stupid" kids. Most test are just remembering how to do that. It's stupid, a lot of the kids the teachers think are "dumb" are actually really smart. Just cause they don't do good on a test.
