2. Acknowledge of the difficulty


The most important task is to locate any potential difficulty. Difficulties face most of the students at their daily school practice. There are differences from student to students. Make the following steps or ask yourself these questions and act accordingly.

  1. Do you think that most of your class mates have better performance than you?
  2. Do you think that most of your class mates understand things better or faster than you?
  3. Do you think that there are courses that you really try hard and do not get back a reward for your effort?
  4. Do you think that there are things in the classroom that you really can’t follow?
  5. Do you think that despite any effort you make in the classroom, there are still things missing in your understanding of the theory of each class?
  6. Any positive answer in the previous questions should progress you to Step 3.
