almost all As in college, B-Cs in High School, a wild mix in grade school.
College was fun, the others were makework.

Mine took a nosedive once I got a car. I barely got my diploma. I went to college after six years in the Marine Corps. I did much better then.

High school: B's and C's

I put forth as little effort as possible. My social life was far more important!

College: A's and B's

I tried a little harder

Grad School:

All A's and one B in three Grad programs. I finally liked what I was studying and wanted to put in the effort and actually cared what my grades were.

All As through elementary school, mostly As and Bs in middle school and high school. I got Cs in Algebra 2 and Trigonometry, LOL. In college, I got all As, but I dropped out after one semester and did not take math classes. I'm actually going back to school next month and will need to take math... that will undoubtedly alter my GPA!

I don't know what the significance of these answers are.

I got A's in Chemistry in high school but only C's in college.

Straight D's in religion in high school my freshman year. I presume that was only because they had a policy of not giving F's. There is no way I could have done less work in religion. LOL

Depends on the subject. I got fairly good grades (A-B) in English, Music and Spanish, middling in Social Studies, and bottom drawer in Science and Math (I hated both those subjects).

no grades, we only received either

or,
  • probably will excel (providing proper vocational training is provided while incarcerated)

College however was designed to challenge you and the lack of preparation I had in school really showed my freshman year.
Same goes for me

All A's, except for one B in my weakest subject in college. I find the grading thing kinda stupid though, because good grades doesn't mean I LIKED it. I dropped out of college after 2 years to get married, no debt, no regrets. I found it too stressful to maintain good grades when I wanted to pursue skills that don't exist in college. Like how to be a better and more skilled homemaker. Clearly, I'm happily married.
