SOMEONE ASKED 👇
What do you think of “C’s get degrees”?
HERE THE ANSWERS 👇
I’ve never heard that saying before, but I’d guess it means that even people with C averages will still graduate and get degrees. And while that’s true, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they’ll get jobs since employers will look for and hire the top students in any major. The top students will also be more likely to get into grad school and be successful at their jobs because they’re smart and disciplined. So, “C’s get degrees, but higher grades get hired.”
This post is quite old but I have to comment. “Cs” do get degrees, of course “As” do too.
I have been in the work force for 30+ years now and I have seen many “A” makers and degree holders that could make a competent inspired decision to save their lives. There are test takers and there are test breakers. The real proof of worth, is where the rubber meets the road, can you perform. A few generations ago it was, what are you good at, apprenticeship and on the job training. Degrees we icing to supplement the doer, with an already sharp mind.These days you can get “As” with “C” effort. But if you really earn your “C” in something you love that an employer can use!
I feel sorry for the people that follow this adage. It is a waste of a great opportunity to learn and expand your mind, not to mention position yourself for success come graduation. I think the statement itself is pretty straightforward, if you get C’s in all your classes in college you will end up with a degree and nothing more. While it may be true for some schools it certainly is not true for better institutions. I currently have to maintain over a 3.5 to not be kicked out of my program, and in undergrad my school required a 3.0 to graduate. While it used to definitely be true, universities are tightening up graduation requirements in order to dispel the idea that “C’s get degrees…”
A s get you paid.
I’ve never heard this but I’m going to assume that it’s saying people who get C’s in high school are the ones who graduate college with degrees. And I think that’s complete bull. The students who work hard to get As and Bs are the ones who will succeed. Not the students who just barely pass by with a passing grade.
