I am aware of several individuals, who left school with no certificates what so ever. One couldn't spell to save himself. They finished up on heavy jets, LHS, armed with U.k. licences.
On the other hand, I've known graduates with degrees in aeronautics, astrophysics etc who have sailed through their ground school exams but had no cockpit sense or synergy. Consequently, they failed when it came to the actual art of flying.

Whilst it filters out the less able, academic achievement isn't always the measure of a good and competent pilot.
