The Secrets Of Top Students - Edudemic

The Secrets Of Top Students - Edudemic | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"Top students aren’t made, they’re born. After effortlessly absorbing whatever the teacher throws at them, they spout it back on tests and watch the A’s come rolling in. They have exceptionally high IQs, making it next to impossible for the rest of the class to compete with them. They’re the ones who leave exams early and breeze through the most complex material in the syllabus. They are eggheads, nerds, geeks, and their success is the result of innate talent and ability."

Do you believe the attributes above are what is necessary for top students or do you think these are misconceptions? Stephanie Weisman, author of "The Secrets of Top Students", interviewed 45 other "outstanding students – including Rhodes scholars, Goldwater scholars, Fulbright recipients, a National Spelling Bee Champion, and students in top law and medical schools – on how they achieved academic success." (She was also a top student and she discusses the challenges she had in school in this post.)

The answers the students gave might surprise you. What is most important?

* Hard work

* Sacrifice
* Support at home
