You asked: Does architecture require a high level of academic level of achievement? No but it helps. You should achieve the highest scores in all your classes to qualifyto go to the University of your choice with less difficulty of getting past the minimum grade requirement.

Does the career require good thinking to be successful? Good thinking means thoughtful design....not necessarily an ingredient in the profession to being successful.

Because I'm thinking I ought to have a different career if I am studying hard and taking very hard courses. Take courses that support the career path. That doesn't mean to take the "very hard" courses.

In other words, does having more knowledge and good academic achievement bring you better success in architecture? IF it gets you into the better University that leads you to the better degree, that leads you to the better firms hiring from the best universities graduates, it could then bring you better success in architecture, but its not necessarrily a given. It is YOU alone that will make a better success in architecture. Attitude, Drive, Motivation, Creativity and to some degree Academic Knowledge among many other factors all add to the formula of what you would consider "Success".
