Is repetition the only way to retention?Students generally get baffled thinkng that how many times they have to repeat their course in any class. Some will do it only once or twice while others go for multiple repetitions. It probably depends upon the grasping power and retention of the student. While some are intelligent enough to score high through single reading only but there are many who have to repeat few times to achieve the same score.
What are the reasons for this difference and what is the optimal number of repetitions that are required for scoring respectable marks in the exam?
Is only repetition the key to retention or there is something else responsible for it? Please share your views.
