Well, that's according the advice given by a STPM straight As student, Teoh Shao Thing. He scored 5As for his exams in Mathematics, Physics, Biology, Chemistry as well as the General Paper.
“I decided never to phak thor (date) throughout my high school years and concentrate on my studies instead,” said the Chung Ling High School student.Well, thankfully for you guys and girls out there - it's not totally true that if you "phak thor" or have boy or girlfriends, you will miss out on your straight As. :) I've had many friends who had steady guy or girlfriends who outperforms me every time with straight As.
Even a schoolmate of Teoh's, Koay Soo Theng who does have a girlfriend, got straight As in 4 subjects. Hence all is not lost on you people with "partners".
What's probably more important is your own personal set of priorities, task management and time allocation. There's always a time for everything and too much of one thing obviously leaves too little for another. Too much hard work and too little play may just make Jack a dull boy as well :)
Have fun, but be good boys and girls :)
