Did you ever get straight A's on a high school or college report card?

I've always gotten one B and the rest being A's. It was so frustrating to me!

Nope, but only because I've only had two chances so far.

Also, grades are not the best nor the only indicator of you as a person. I got into a great school even with a low GPA because I wrote great essays, was involved in my community, and was well liked by my teachers:)

07/01/12 7:45 am

Nope. I was never a very involved student in high school. I couldn't focus. I did, however, get a 2200 on my SATs.

Took 3 APs this year (senior year) and a full schedule, and still didn't get lower than a 95 each quarter. I'm headed to a good college!

I think this may show that the younger generations are either becoming smarter b/c of schools or teachers, or that school is getting easier.

06/29/12 6:08 pm

Well, I never got anything lower than a 95% this year, my freshman year. Finished 2nd in my class for this year.

06/29/12 11:03 am

Freshman year of hs yes. Ended with a 3.6. I could have done better, but I didn't work hard enough. Setting a higher bar for myself for college.

Straight A Republican right here; High school and college. Political affiliation has nothing to do with intelligence.

Hahaha!!! 56% of Republicans lied on this one.

Straight A Republican = Oxymoron

No, thanks to my gym teacher who had something against me. I participated plenty, if not more than necessary, in gym, got all As on what we did in health, and I'm an athlete, so I dunno what her problem is.

Also, geometry sucks.

Mostly straight A's through high school, sometimes with a B in PE and once a C- in math. I had one of the highest GPA's in my school. Slipped a bit in college, but had some straight A semesters and graduated cum laude from UCLA.

@David from my experience in hs getting straight a's wasn't easy. I struggled a little bit in english because it is not my first language but i managed to get As in that subject.

My HS gave number grades. I averaged 99+ in math, 97 or so in foreign languages and 80's and worse in the rest (social studies, science, English). Straight A's? Never came close.
Got smart after grad school.

Majoring in computer science. Sub-major computer networking aka cisco systems.

@David my school can go over the general gpa system and that it boosted mine up because of ap and ib tests. My current school i attend also has different gpa system. It used to be 4.37 but the highest one could get is 4.5.

06/28/12 3:06 pm

I hated school. I was one of those students who hardly studied but did well on exams (no cheating either). Ended up with an 2.1 gpa + lots of absences in HS. I did get an 34 on the ACT and in college I tried alot harder. I took 15 units my freshman year, stopped skipping classes & made deans list.

Super-Mensa IQ (155), 800 Math SAT, NEVER had a straight A's report card!
I KNOW that telling a lie is LEGAL but what's the point? You are anonymous in this polling!

06/28/12 2:02 pm

The 4.5 gpa is like saying "I gave 110%".

06/28/12 12:14 pm

Must have a 734.623 gpa to make a difference. Yes that is sarcasm. Making gpa's over a 4.0 is inflation an A should be an A. Bragging is low. It is what you do with what you learn that counts.

06/28/12 3:41 am

I wish. Pretty much a B student in HS & college. Juggling military duties with college was difficult for me.

06/28/12 1:13 am

Never got a B in my life.

06/28/12 1:12 am

I went to a private school and graduated top of my class with a cumulative 5.2 gpa. Right not I'm a junior at my school with a 4.5 gpa majoring in interdisciplinary fields of biology.

06/28/12 12:40 am

Yes, once in HS and it nearly killed me. ;-)

Too many liars. Or people cant read, it says "straight a's" meaning all classes in a year or semester. Not one a un middle school. Pretty hard to do specially as you go up in college. Ive gotten an 2 or 3 but not all straight. I have a life. Nd its hardddÓĆ∑

I'm finishing my first year of college as n accounting major with a 4.0!!!

06/27/12 9:40 pm

College, yes. Too busy worrying about boys and how I looked get the A's in high school.

06/27/12 9:30 pm

All As in both HS and college

06/27/12 9:16 pm

I worked super hard, but when I had the closest chance I would earn a B in something.

06/27/12 8:53 pm

Getting money for grades was a good incentive for me, so I did everything I could to get straight A's. I got my first C in college, which was devastating.

I benefited from egregiously low standards

ONCE, in college! It was a summer semester and I had kind of easy classes.

Most of the time I did. I was my high school's salutatorian. Which my good grades is why I have completed 2 years of college without paying or owing anything. :)

My shop teacher used to just let me sleep so I wouldn't disrupt the class. He was my favorite. He knew giving me a hard time was a pointless waste of energy. I had every right to be a problem child, but I turned out better than most of my well behaved classmates :) south FL school system sux.
