Grades will open doors for you, there’s no doubt about it, but if I had to choose between high grades and a great working attitude, I would choose “attitude” every time.
In choosing team members, for me it is “attitude” that ranks higher than grades. High grades are good obviously, but all too often they inflate our egos.
The ability to pass exams is one thing. The ability to work with others, to work unselfishly and sometimes to share in the less glamorous tasks, well that’s a whole lot more valuable in a working team.
