Cuban scholarship & GPA

Thank you editor for allowing me a space to drop some comment. Indeed I would like to thank Mr George and Ishmael for their contribution to this issue of cuban scholarship. Infact i agreed with what these two guys have said that GPA does not necessarily reflect the capability of individuals.

There are other things such as students behaivor and character that were also important in determining how far you can excel in your academic studies. There are classmates of mine who have acquired high GPA (3+) but due to too much partying and socialising they fail their courses and were terminated from their scholarships (SIG). Therefore I for one believe that good character and behaviour also played a significant role in determining ones academic performance and not only the so called GPA.
