Question

I am in middle school right now (7th grade). My lowest grade is
currently a 95.16%. My highest grade is currently a 101.29%.
Getting into college is REALLY important to me. I want to go to
Duke for Biology or Animal Sciences, and to vet school. How high
should my grades be? Would these grades be considered good, to
colleges that looked at them? What could I do to better my grades?
I know it's a little early, but i'm concerned.
Sincerely,
A Worried Student

Please, please, please stop fixating on grades. As a 7th grader you should be focussed on
learning and enjoying school and your friends. If you focus on learning and developing your
talents in the things you love your grades will look after themselves.
