Is it only me that realizes grades aren’t truly based on how smart you are? It’s mostly on how much work you turn in or how much you’re respectful to the teacher. I’m really not that smart, but I get As. I have good grades and I’m in Honors. I’m not smart, though. I turn in my work and listen to the teacher and get good grades. I wish there was a way to tell if you are really smart or not. I don’t think grades are the way to find out.
