But wait

gpa is important.
internship/work experiences are important.
connections are important.

but if you should slack off on one, never ever choose the second one.

Agreed, and also it matters more for some jobs vs others. But to a certain extent.

Second lower... hard to find jobs sometimes (depends on what you're looking for)
Second upper - first ... similar in standard for some companies
First - how much you stand out from second upper depends on the job/ company. Some companies allocate you to different departments due to grades, different pay grade. Some companies hire only first class (i.e. top tier finance companies)

gpa is important, but only to limited extent.

I have friends, including myself, had second lower honours, but still managed to get into MNCs. And during interviews, they asked more about real experiences you had during internships, or running your own business. Interviewers are also concerned about your people skills, which can't be determined by your grades.

So as long as you don't get a failing gpa, there's still chance.

My personal experience so far tells me that network is more important than your school grades/resumes.

Some companies hire only first class (i.e. top tier finance companies)
that's what i used to think. with the right network and interviewing skills, you don't have to be first class.

I believe that GPA is important for proving how academically proficient you are, which could give good first impressions on paper. However, the question is how well you translate this proficiency to your work which produce actual results aside from paper qualifications.
