There is none. I graduated with almost the worst possible results (3.9) and I turned out fine.

>>288434 Your counselor fucked you, time to return the favor, anally and consensually.

>>288434 Looks like you went entirely in a different direction, drop out. High school is meant to lead students and help them choose their careers, that's why it has various subjects, you're supposed to get a job at what subject you were good at in High School, but I can assume you weren't good at anything.

>>288450 I scored 99% on the social studies section of the GED exam on my first try without studying roughly four years after dropping out of high school if that means anything.

>>288484 You did it wrong! You were supposed to graduate high school, go to college, then go to university to get your PhD. And finally die!
