IQ definitely matters, there's studies that show a correlation between IQ and educational and academic attainment. It isn't everything, you would just be wrong that it isn't a pretty accurate measure of intelligence and predictor of upbringing and later success in life, IQ tests also have many different types of intelligences they test you on in their tests.
