Does academic excellence guarantees a successful life?

Introduction 1: Nowadays academic excellence among the young is given much importance. While it is perfectly acceptable to strive to achieve good academic results, the notion that only academic excellence guarantees a successful life is not true. Students are pressured into taking more subjects than they can handle and this causes immense pressure among our young. The question is can this endeavour absolutely confirm a dynamic future . Introduction 2: Within the last century or so, people have come to place much importance on academic excellence. The same can be said about academia in Malaysia. The government has placed priority in educating the young generation with the increase of funding and a more applicable standardized testing system. Even with all these improvements, does academic excellence guarantee a successful life? To some success is embodied in the 5cs that includes tangible things which is cash, car and comfort.

Although admittedly, for a person with academic excellence there is a better chance of starting over and picking up pieces with academic excellence, it opens doors to different countries and different job opportunities compared to someone without.

Point 2 Disagrees : Many students are now pushed into striving for academic excellence by their parents and teachers. Thus the hunger for learning and knowledge does not come from within. Rather it is forced upon them and borne reluctantly. This intense pressure could cause severe psychological and emotional problems in the future. Therefore, instead of only pursuing academic excellence, perhaps, children should be given a chance to explore other fields such as sports and music? It cannot be denied that individuals who are daring enough to stray into other callings have also found success in life . For instance, good management skills and a never-say-die attitude has kept Sir Alex Fergusons position, as manager to one of the most successful football clubs in the world, secure. Therefore by cultivating different skills and passions, individuals can still lead a successful and fulfilling
