One of my junior school reports said I needed to concentrate more on the here and now and a bit less on the unknown. He wasn't one of the most imaginative teachers, and I haven't changed a bit. Some people just don't get Science Fiction, Space Travel, Comics, and the Paranormal ;-) I don't really have any comments that relate much to later academic life because after I left school I got into subjects that I hadn't studied before. I took a degree in a subject that I hadn't taken at either 'O' or 'A' level, and there were no computers in any school I went to. Oddly enough it was watching people exploring the unknown (ie Space) that first got me interested in computers, and I've made a living out of it ever since.
