That students of 90% have studied more than students of 60%.
BUT, of course, that’s quite evident.
Let’s understand this…
The students who score more in exams doesn’t really mean they are more intelligent and smarter. With the outdated education infrastructure we have, it simply means those students are just good at cramming new information.
Similarly, those who score 60% or even less, this doesn’t mean they aren’t intelligent or smart. This means that they are just not into remembering new information.
We’ve all heard of SO MANY success stories of individuals who did poorly in their school. We’ve also heard so many stories of people who didn’t even go to school in the first place and yet managed to climb the top of the ladder.
So, let’s get this off the bat: the difference between student of 60% and student of 90% is NOT intelligence and smartness.
For me, with how things are at present, I believe student of 90% are trained in a fake environment where they are taught that learning about calculus and the periodic table, unless they pick a career in that, will help them in their lives. They are shown as a winner in a fake environment. It’s dangerous. When they get out of the school’s gate after a decade and they are hit on the face by the real market, it’s going to hurt them the most. And they will end up wondering that they were the “best” in school so why things turned out bad in the real world.
Not to say that students of 60% have any advantage in any way. If anything, there’s a good chance that they are far worse. They lack the discipline that students of 90% have. However, one edge that they have over the A-students is that they have a real sense of the fake environment they are in. They are NOT awarded the 8th position awards. They “survive” through their school days. When they get out of school life, they have been trained to see the difficult situations. All these days they have been told by teachers and even parents that how “incompetent” and “bad” they are. So, when the market hits them in the face, it hurts them less vs. students of 90%.
Of course, this is a thesis that many people wouldn’t agree with. BUT it’s about time we understand that just because a student was “good” in school doesn’t mean he is more likely to win at career vs. students who were “bad”.
Fortunately, we now live in a time when grades mean NOTHING. The Internet has changed everything. Everyone has the same chance of becoming successful in life.
Coming back to your exact question – students of 60% and students of 90% – they both have some advantages and disadvantages over one another.
Students of 90% are more disciplined and have (assumingly) higher IQ. But they also live in a fake environment where they are made to believe that scoring big would mean success in life.
Students of 60% are more realistic and have (assumingly) higher EQ with surviving tendency. But they are also not very disciplined. They are told that they are “bad” and “won’t succeed”. It leads to poor self-confidence and self-esteem for so many of them.
These are a few differences between students of 60% and students of 90%.
Hope this answers your question.
