You missed my point. What do you think I am? I already self admitted that I am a very lazy person. My GPA score is nothing special, I don't study, I have failed a class(an honors class, because of a missed 10 page paper), have trouble focusing on busy work, etc. I can tell you though it annoys me when people act like I must have gotten a lower score because I don't like those types of test, when really I have scored 99% multiple times, though I put little value in that fact towards how capable I actually am. However, trust me when I say getting As in classes like AP Physics and AP Chemistry that are almost solely test based(I know because that is how I passed with As in those types of classes without doing much homework), is FAR more valuable than getting a 33 or whatever on a general skills test that is basically giving you a bunch of non specific random questions, that almost totally rely on speed and how far you have gone with your classes.
The whole concept of standardized testing is pretty stupid(not to say there isn't value there, but I don't like the shift in usage that has happened), especially now that they are doing it at the lower level and forcing pointless numberline systems that have to be memorized in order to preform on the math sections, but I don't want to get in an argument about that.
I looked up the ASVAB and it has been shown to correlate extremely highly .95+ with reading ability. The ASVAB is more or less a measure of literacy. It doesn't seem very relevant, I was merely trying to give my point of view on what the kid asking had already done, considering I am doing the same things right now. GPA obviously reflects work ethic, but it also reflects understanding of courses that often provide a more realistic setting to the skills you will need in college and beyond, though even it is still very very loosely reflected. However I think it is every bit as legitimate as the test, it measures ability/potential as well as work ethic, and as I have already pointed out there are many flaws in those tests and getting a bad score is nothing to worry about, especially given how many other indicators of ability college's will look at.
