- Students are not instructed about study techniques.
- Don`t have any clue about the effectiveness of techniques they are using currently.
- There is a possibility that even Teachers are not aware of them.
- They were never taught about “Learning” and how to Learn effectively for future retention.
- Every students has it’s own strength and weaknesses.
- Our education system focuses more on weakness rather than strength.
- Study techniques will benefit students who are motivated and capable of using them.
