Learning is also a skill. It is not a possible thing that the best teacher can get best students. Even though you have the best coach in the world, you also need to learn how to gain knowledge from them. Listening, reading, thinking are all the possible skill to get a high academic performance. The response to the teacher is also necessary as teachers should know whether you can accept. When you gain the knowledge from your master, it doesn’t mean you can control and use it. You need to transfer all these things to your experience.
