If I understand your response, you are comfortable with the following:
1. It is a good thing to exchange one’s time and effort for something of value which may then be exchanged for something else of value. (I’m sure I fit your definition of a troll, but try to stay with me here. This may be a little complex for you, but I’m sure you’re capable if you try hard enough.)
2. It is okay to demand a portion of the exchange value gained by the effort of one person to give it to a different person who hasn’t earned as much of same exchange value, regardless of the reason for the disparity. The one receiving may simply not have worked as hard or skillfully, or may not have had opportunity or may have chosen to do nothing at all.
Now lets compare the money we earn with the grades we earn and see what’s really different.
A. We expend time and effort to earn money – we expend time and effort to earn our GPA.
B. We consider high earnings a benefit – we consider a high GPA a benefit.
C. The higher our earnings, the more can exchange our those earnings for something we consider valuable, i.e. goods and services (or in some cases, a higher GPA) – the higher our GPA, the more we can exchange our high GPA for something we consider valuable, i.e. entry into a better post-graduate school or a better starting job.
D. We have the right to keep and use the things of value we have earned as we see fit – and I’m certain beyond a shadow of a doubt that you think you have the right to keep all of your GPA for your own benefit. If so, you would be 100% correct.
Now, tell us again please, why are we trolls and why is this different?

Why is this deception?

This is outright deception. You’re a troll.
