Many students complain that they spend a long time studying and preparing for exams, but they surprise their families that despite the long hours spent studying and preparing for exams, their exam results were few and low.
Many students feel resentment and dissatisfaction when they see that a student does not study much, but gets high grades. On the other hand, many students do not study and neglect to study their lessons, either because of their low motivation to study or because they feel bored and frustrated when studying.
Although some study for hours, and others do not study, the student becomes suspicious of himself:
Is my intelligence lower than the rest of my colleagues?
Is my capability of understanding and assimilation small ?
Do I need an additional increase in the number of study hours?
Or is there some way to study that helps increase understanding and I didn't do it????????????
