What matters in academics
Maybe you're not the best student, or maybe you just don't know how to be a good student, but all that really matters is that you try. As long as you try you will never truly fail. School now a days is focused on teaching people how to test, but in the real world what matters is that you possess the skills necessary to complete the tasks assigned to you. Don't worry about your grades as long as you actually try, with time your grades will show that you are trying and learning.
