Why grades matter


Kayla Onn, Staff Writer

Why are grades so important you might ask? Well, having good grades lays out a foundation for your entire life. IF you have good grades, you can go to your future college, get a good-paying job, and you can live the life you want after college. What I am trying to say is that grades can lead you to success if you use them correctly.

I want to get good grades so I can go to college and get a job so I can make my parents proud and to have them not worry about me anymore. I want to take care of them so they don’t have to worry about trying to get enough money to stabilize the house, I just want them to be able to lay around since they’ve worked hard trying to support my brothers and me.

If you want to go to college, your high school grades are crucial. When deciding whether to accept or deny a student, institutions may take into account his or her grade point average (GPA). Your college grades are even more important if you wish to continue on to graduate or professional school. Applicants to law school, medical school, veterinary school, graduate business school, and most graduate arts and sciences programs face strong competition. The most essential factor in determining whether or not you are admitted will most certainly be your college grades.

This is why I try my hardest in school to get good grades even though sometimes I may slack a little. I am very proud of myself for getting all A’s this semester because I haven’t had all A’s since 6th grade. And I’ve been disappointing my mom so this time I felt like I actually did something. Now the hard part is keeping up with them. I need to maintain my grades.
