All of these successful and famous people are examples enough that GPA is just a number. It does not make you the most talented, creative or intelligent person. Most of the times, it is the dropouts or people who do not attend college who are successful in life. While it helps to have a higher CGPA mentioned on your resume, you should not just rely on it. Your abilities, talent and creativity are what matters the most.
