In this achievement-oriented and cutthroat world, it has become of utmost paramountcy that one performs well in school and attains passing grades. Indeed, the school/university-setting is swarming with viciously competitive students and equally vicious and stringent rules and regulations. So much so that a singular absence from class may lead to gravely detrimental consequences on a student’s report card.
