My scholarship depended on higher than 3.0 gpa, so I was careful to talk with my professors and ensure I would not be getting less than a B assigned by them. Most were happy to award an A, exempt me from Final Exams if I had been doing well, or offer ways to earn more credit. I definitely recommend doing your best to be charming and hard-working in school, and ask your teachers/professors about what more you can do to make sure you do well. They don't want you to fail, after all.

Solid F's for the most part. I believe 69% and lower was an F and in many classes I was around 44-47% Towards the end of high school I put in a little effort and got C's and D's though.

Elementary->High School:
I made almost all A's. I think I had a B in AP Euro History but the teacher really made the class hard mode. At the end my GPA was over 4.0 because of some additional modifiers onto Honors and AP classes.

College (Computer Engineering, GA Tech):
Mmm... I mostly made A's, mixed a decent amount of B's, and then a few C's in classes I stopped caring about. Problem was I got senioritis fairly early on, so I kind of stopped giving a crap and just did what I could. Ended up with a... 3.45? I think? Well I've got my degree anyway.

It got me a decently cushy job, too.

Masters (CS):
So far, I have 1 A. That's all I've taken. >_>

I ran the entire gamut, mostly Bs, Cs, and Ds. Homework was my Archille's heel. I usually refused to do it. In class, though, I was often very studious.

Good grades in elementary school. Good grades most of middle school. Apathy set in and I started doing very poorly in 8th grade. I got mostly Cs and occasional Bs in high school. I usually did pretty well on tests and classwork, I just never turned in homework. Nothing was ever hard to learn, I was just really damned lazy and my grades suffered for it.

I was anywhere from a D- student to a B+. I'll be frank, I treated school like a joke. I felt like the (home)work was beneath me, dull, and pointless. I almost always got A+ on tests, and with the schools stupid grade ratios, I would usually cruse along at 40%(F), just to ace the big test and get 65% overall with almost no homework done.

Idk if im a genus for finding out how pass with the least amount of effort while still 'learning', or a fool for spending all that hard work figuring out fomulas when I could of spent it just doing the work.

I would not recomend this method with any real parents. Luckly, I had an ailing grandmother 'watching' over me. It was too easy to keep my grades hidden from her for the most part.

on a side note, sometimes I sware genus level IQ is a curse. When your grinding the same shit for a week, you just have no motivation to keep doing the same shit over and over when you know you can pass the test so fast you are asleep for 75% of test time.

High school gpa, 2.8
Real grade, effort, F
Real grade, cunning and creativity, A
Real grade, retention, C

Loopholes too op, plz nerf.

Mostly A's and B's in High school. I think my GPA hovered around 3.5 - 3.8/4.0

Same for college, but a more static GPA of 3.625.

I owe it to photographic memory, and being organized.

I got mostly A's and a few Bs. I got some C's and an F during a year where I was going through stuff. But soon as I got my life back in order so did my grades.

Pretty much all As and Bs up through my undergraduate degree. Now in engineering grad schools if I get Bs I'm cool with it, this stuff is pretty damn difficult

Mostly A's and B's for me with an occasional C or two for classes I just had a really tough time with. I generally got A's in math-related courses through high school and B's for liberal arts courses, and in college that pretty much was the same case. In grad school, pretty much everybody got A's and B's in the courses as a C or lower are only give to those who are totally lazy and not do assignments as a B great is required to pass those courses unlike in undergrad, and with the courses often being sequences that the professors could ill-afford to to fail students unless they totally mail it in. My GPA is generally in the 3.6-3.8 range, so I was an excellent student back in school.

I'm set for medical school so I always aim for A's, and I get A's with occasional B's. I got one C in my Integral Calculus subject bc wtf, I'm no Engineering student.

I did not try in highschool, which I regret a lot. I was a C/D student. But now that I'm in college, I am an A/B student. I got my shit together and stuff.

Typically, the harder the class was, the better my grades. I failed my first Calculus course, but aced Real Analysis, which is, to the uninformed, basically the theoretical foundation of Calculus. I was relatively bullshit intolerant when it came to schoolwork. It was not uncommon, for example, to completely refuse to write a paper if the subject was boring, because I found myself unable to write pridefully what are commonly called 'bullshit papers.' I still keep to this sentiment, but after my first couple of years in college, I learned to just come up with tangential, novel (to me, at least) observations on topics to sort of artificially create interest in the topic. This allowed for survival.

Luckily, the working world gives you money for pointless work, instead of the dreadful experience of paying money for pointless work. I still read physics, economics, and philosophy texts for fun, so I'm rather proud of myself as a learner, but goddamn I'm a terrible student. It was the strangest thing--classes that everyone was acing I was getting B's, C's and a couple F's, and classes that everyone was stressing and complaining about I was getting A's.
