Why would it be bad to be a good student? My brain even though I'm an American can't think of why someone would think that! tdemex

Hi there! I can't fathom what he meant by cautious being a "good student" because a good student is what we should be. We can never pass and get good grades if we are not good enough. I just don't believe that as a student, we should bury ourselves with books and avoid socializing because being a student is also the best time in meeting new friends and developing your personality. If he really is an expert, he should have cautioned students on being too carefree rather than being good.

What you mean by a good student? geek? someone who always does his homework? Haha i am aiming to be one. But maybe if too focused on being one, you might lose your friends? miss all the fun in school? guess this is why its not very good to be one.
