According to me career should be selected on the bases of interests !!! As interests make you better in ur work. If one will choose there career on the bases of his/her interest he/she will stay active and energetic while doing their job.....it is obvious that if some chooses their career in a subject of their interests they will perform their best.

Academic results are not always important.... for example - bill gates , he was not really good in academics. His interest was computers and technology.... he chose his career on basis of his interest and now he is very successful even though he was a college drop out.

Career Choices should be based on your academic performance.While loving your job is good thing, You need to have great academic performance to even get a chance to be in a job. Lets say you wanna be a doctor, and your very enthusiastic about it. Unfortunately you cant get in a job because your academic performance is bad. At the end of day knowledge,and skill is important.You can try numerous times to be a doctor no matter how enthusiastic you are. You still gotta pass the academic performance.

But if one does not have interest in academic so he/she will not be good enough in it that ...person will just be studying for the sake of marks. If one in interested in sports then what??? Or arts!! Then also academics result realted to maths and science and other subjects r important

You can have no interest in a academic but people do that because they need a way to make a living.Also pretty sure they wont accept you in a NFL team without have a high school diploma.Art is also a subject with no academics but there is art schools that teaches you the academics of art.

Its is not necessary to be educated to earn living... As i mentioned before the example of bill gates... He was a collage dropout. There are many peoples like that who are not graduated but extremely successful like - racheal ray, michael dell, david green, dave thomas, steve jobs and many more are there

If one have knowledge and skills on particular subject he/she is intrested in he/she can make living by working hard in field of his/her intrest.

I will agree on the people that became successful that were college drop outs became successful and that is true. Unfortunately you named the people were successful, you didn't talk about the 2/3 Americans that dont graduate. 50% of college dropouts have incomes lower then 35k a year.Your twice as likely to be unemployed then a person who is a college graduate.Most employers wont touch you if you dont have a high school diploma.While on the topic of high school diplomas people with a high school diploma earns 84% less then a average person with a 4 year college degree.How about the 1.2 million people drop out of high school. Your academic performance matters whether you wanna do something or not.
