    I fully agree to the view. Academic performance does not guarantee success in professional life. Whatever we study and whatever we work has a big gap and further, in academia people are focussed more on theoratical knowledge. As an HR professional I always protested this and my long career so-far, I have just focussed on consistency of the job applicant, not their percentage. I am ready to accept somebody who has consistently performed 45,48 and 48 percentage or D, D, C grade, But I will think about a person who has performed 90, then 75 and then 70 percentage. I feel, HR build the concept on the basis of their own mindset rather than having a scientific approach.
