YES TO ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE
When I told my friend academic performance is the best indicator of potential for success in life, he argued and said how can tha be if Bill Gates was a drop out and Albert Einstein was not a good student, my response to this was what was their foundation of knowledge? he answered school, I again asked what was their reason to go to school? he replied to be successful, I think we should not ignore the thousand of people who were unsuccessful because they did not go to school or had no academic performance, I see those who regard academic performance as not been an indicator of potential for success in life are among those that waits for success to come their way.
