I understand everything and struggle to memorize anything. Like, I can conceptualize just about anything, and then I forget all the details and fail tests. I was once in a Data Structures course where I understood everything- how trees worked, what a linked list was, etc. But I didn't memorize the algorithms line by line; I couldn't memorize that much information and it seemed very pointless when the whole goal of an algorithms and data structures course should be understanding. I got a 43 on the first test and a 23 on the second. I dropped the course and retook it. All the material was complete review; I didn't understand it any more or less. But I got an A in the course that time because I spent hours trying to cram the algorithms line by line into my brain. The reality is that school is NOT designed to test your understanding or ability to apply. It tests purely your ability to memorize and recite knowledge. Otherwise people like me wouldn't fail.

I don't study for tests. I'm often times get one of the better scores of the class on tests, and by that I mean better than most people around me. I don't schedule my time, I don't work hard, I don't do extra exam questions, and I'm one of the higher students. I think this is because of my old habit of reading for hours on end, not even stopping while eating and walking. Top students like reading.
The major reason why I don't get better grades is my lack of focus and how easily I get distracted, which is redundant.
Seriously, I never do any practice exams. I don't think I've done more than 3 in my life.

For me being incredibly polite and having a good attitude are what get me B's and A's on my report. Having 80%-95% as my average test score is just an accessory.
Also! Teachers love it when you show interest in what they're teaching you, especially if you jump ahead of the curriculum it's great for getting on their good side.
