*head meet desk* how old are you and how many years have you been in the working world?

I'll pretend that you are not trolling and state the standard exam 100% correct answer- after the interview and if you are in the public sector once your pay grade has been settled; your GPA counts for jackshit. Why? because that's when the exams and niceties stop and it's your time to start performing.
Best part? there's no hiding if you're lousy. Not even when you're a white horse more pure bred then a pure breed dog.

For those big companies, a good GPA gets you to the door (i.e a bad gpa = door also don't have). Whether you get the job or not is beyond the GPA liao. But if you have the network and is zai just that cannot ace exams, then GPA is not important at all lor.

Networking > GPA. This is the most useful takeaway from FTW. It is not what you know but who you know.

Lousy white horse in your eyes maybe brilliant to those who promo them.

As others have mentioned, GPA only counts when you apply for your first job (i.e. High GPA grants you an interview,whatever happened during the interview is entirely up to you). Subsequently, its all about the experiences.

those with education have a higher chance of succeeding. those without can still succeed if they are street smart. Those who are street smart & book smart are in the top management position. At the end of the day, GPA is just a number
