Repetition of studies is key factor for academic success of mediocre students Every student is not very brilliant. Many are mediocre and may be hard working but are not very intelligent. They work hard but their memory may not be sharp and may take more time in understanding the basic academic concepts. Some of them can get discouraged by this also and may not take interest in studies thinking that it is not their cup of tea. I was also not a brilliant or highly intelligent student but my learning experience in this matter is different and I want to share this with the students who are sailing in the same boat. When I was in my college then I found that some students were scoring high marks with less studies while many of us were doing much studies but were not able to score high. That time I could not find any reason for that anomaly. Anyway, I continued and did more and more hard work and with more number of repetitions of my syllabus in different subjects and finally with great efforts I could match my score with the brilliant ones and they might be surprised as how this mediocre one came so near to them. So, the lesson learnt was that the key to academic success lies in going through the syllabus multiple times as a single scan is not going to help to the mediocre students. We have to compensate for our deficit in intelligence and memory. Do you agree with this finding?
