Why don’t many students consistently use effective techniques while studying?

Possible explanations could be:-

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