The usefulness of achievement in high school

You often hear it: ‘I don’t feel like doing my homework’. ,Nah, I’ll pick up those 3 again., ‘I think doing homework is unnecessary’. But in some classes you will also find perfectionist children who do not often score lower than a 7+. But why? What good do you actually get from high grades in high school? What will you remember about it later? Why perform well if you might not use half of it later?

High school performance

This is a long-fought issue, of course if you are going to follow a draw study then you have to. But that’s not what this is about. This article is about the fact of getting top grades, its usefulness in the practical field and in the further stage of your life.

This phenomenon of not doing anything for school is often seen among teenagers, this is mainly due to the fact that if you perform better as a child, you are often approached negatively by your classmates. You are called a nerd, a student, etc. As a result, many children deliberately get mediocre grades. Only when good performance is also rewarded ‘psychologically’, think of appreciation instead of jealousy, will more attention be paid to doing your best for the course material.

However, there are still exceptions that still want to achieve top grades against this trend. Or a lucky few who happen to be in a class where high grades are welcomed. Especially in first grade, parents are often criticized for having to push their child to get high grades. However, pushing doesn’t help. Mainly because the class is basically going to label you, and a kid in high school doesn’t want that.

If you were to ask a lot of teenagers in secondary school about their grades, most of them would probably either not be ready to transition yet, or their grades would be very similar to a 6’s culture. They often do this because they ‘don’t feel like it’ or just to fit in. Of course there are no exceptions.

Sometimes you also see that children miss something in their lives and that they then compensate for that with school. So, for example, when children are in a fairly serious situation in which they are belittled. You will sometimes see that children will suddenly shoot up in their grades, somewhere they have to be able to compensate for that confidence that they can do something.

But to get to the heart of this story and what this piece is actually about: What good is all the information and knowledge you learn in high school?

How do you see the residual knowledge you learn in high school moving forward in your life?

You learn many of the things you hear in high school, you create a real foundation. But what will you remember once you have completed your studies and have a full-time job? This started to niggle at my head.

Adults still make quite a few basic mistakes. A lot of purely mashed-up teaching material sticks remarkably well to the previous generation. They claimed that in the past they had to pound and grind much more than they do now. Of course, this depends on many more factors, but the examples focus on the ‘basics’ you should have learned in high school.

Try it out yourself: go to your parents and ask her for a list of French words, or perhaps German. Immediately afterwards, ask a few questions about a subject for which you need insight, such as mathematics, and you will notice that the acquired knowledge has been retained much better. Especially the stomping, stomping, stomping and more stomping has stuck. But only a small part of that remained stuck, about 8% if you can assume that most of what remained stuck was stamped.

Stomp, stomp and more stomp

It has been researched that you remember approximately 8% of what you learned in secondary school, you choose a subject package that suits you, but there too you will find a broad spectrum of information that you no longer need in your later stages of life. to call for it to sink away. School is not intended to teach you all that information and knowledge for later, but to give you a basis in your backpack and to get you used to a work attitude so that we can function in society and practice a profession that we enjoy. find.

Now you may think that you will graduate from high school with all rounded 6’s, but this will also become a problem at some point. You will be transferring with a lot of stress and some tests will suddenly be disappointing because you thought you could manage a 6 anyway, especially in the higher years. Even if you remember almost nothing from high school, you absolutely cannot live without it! But a 10 for a vocabulary test where you learn how to write bratwurst in German, you can also imagine that it is quite useless. What I mean to say is that there are certainly certain core elements that you need to master well to pass your final exams, but many you don’t.

Just do your homework well , this helps a lot to learn the material you need to know, even if it is very boring! Don’t spend too much effort on school, if you really have to work hard, just go to a lower level. You can still move up. But don’t spend too little effort, as this will really start to bother you at some point! For example, consider the fact that you graduated from pre-university education in your slippers, and you are used to doing everything in your slippers. But now you are suddenly faced with a tough course of study that will set you back in the future.

Of course, you should not forget that there is a big difference between knowledge and intelligence. Knowledge is also a very broad concept. High school is also just about creating a foundation, that’s how you should see it. The better years of life come when you start studying.
