It is a general misconception that some children are born intelligent while most are average and a few below average. Alright! Now I do believe that everybody takes their own time in understanding things and excelling them but is it really true that the maximum number of students who are amazingly good at studies born that way? I don’t think so! What is it that smart students have that others don’t have in them? Let me tell you what is it that makes them do exceptionally well as compared to other students.

 They engage in classrooms

Smart students just don’t sit and listen to the lecturer, they interact in the class with either teacher or themselves, they try to make a connection to what is being said to the experiences they have had or to related to what they have studied before. Paying attention in a class at times could be tough. But you need to make efforts in order to grasp each and every thing to make the best out of a class.

They participate in activities

Taking part in extracurricular activities not only makes school a fun place to go to but it also has a very positive effect on personality development. Smart students pick something relevant to their skills and participate in it which connects them to a lot of new people and makes them a social person which is very necessary to be a successful tomorrow.

When they study they avoid distractions

Smart students understand the value of study time and they utilize it very well, whatever the time you have set aside to study in a day make sure you don’t do anything else during that time (such as gossiping, texting, watching TV etc). Keep your focus only at what you are trying to learn during that time and make it a regular habit.




They talk about what they learn

They talk about what they have studied in schools to your friends and family. If you are not doing so then you are missing out on a very good habit. Talk to your siblings, parents or friends about what you study every day; what is it that you enjoyed learning the most or what is it that gave you a tough time. After all, the most thing in everyday life is to learn something (at least while you educate).

 They choose friends smartly

Would you like to be with someone who always interrupts you while you are trying to understand something important, or someone who won’t let you pay attention in a classroom? Absolutely not! Smart students choose friends who also understand the importance of learning. You will feel the difference of being with such friends having positive effects on you as well.

They enjoy learning

Smart students always try to figure out different ways of studying as everyone gets of tired of repeating the same things the same way every day. They try to learn things in unique ways, try to study in groups, take help from your friends who are good at something in which you aren’t.


We all spend a huge part of life in learning until we really start earning. So try to enjoy it much as you can while maintaining the balance between academics and fun times. After all only good education has the potential for a successful career.
