Every student across the globe wants to excel in their academics. They all want to be that student who is exceptionally brilliant, creative, intelligent or even be a genius.
Just imagine a world where every student is a genius! Mind blowing right? believe me I will love to be one but the reality every student must face is the fact that not everyone is a genius or exceptionally brilliant. We have the geniuses who basically don’t sweat to get good grades, they are simply talented like that.
The above-average students put in a Little hard work and still achieve good grades, the average students have to work harder, elucubrate i.e. burn the midnight oil and go through a topic over and over again before it sticks to their memory, while the below average students are mostly exasperated at the amount of time and effort they have to put in to make just a pass grade.
A lot of students fall into this last category and they wonder if they are in school to warm up the class seats or make up the number of students in the department. These students though not good in academics are great at other extracurricular activities within the campus. The good news to this gloomy tale is that astrology has a big part to play as to why some of your peers excel with little or no effort. By astrology I mean the zodiac sign under which you were born.
You are probably curious and wondering what the zodiac sign has to do with anything. Well, in this article you will discover how the zodiac sign influences some of the decisions you make as a student, your attitude towards your studies and why it is easier for some of your friends to make good grades without stress.
