How important are marks in school?

I'm in high school, and I have always done my best to learn the material really well, but never really strive to get the top marks. As long as I learned what the topic was about to its core in the unit i was content, I never caught myself striving for extra credit to simply get the top mark.

    Sep 11 2011: Hi my friend
    The first question : why we go to school ?
    2nd :why we go to university ?
    I think if we know why we go there , maybe we will abandon there. with today technologies we can learn most of the lesson that we learn in school.... but what is different ? the social skills or teamwork skills that we can"t learn lonely .
    but mark should use for special skill or degree .
    and we should found the ways to find capacities and improvedevelop that.
