I remember you said you did really well in T6 despite not trying hard. Is it luck, or innate talent? Gotta be one of the two right. What's your opinion. Do you think if you worked harder, you'd do even better?
First, I didn't do amazingly well. There are people who did better than I did ITT/I know many who did better than I did.
But to answer your question, neither. I get lucky and apparently can write in a way that's easily parsed during exams. The only thing that I can parse out is that I do better when I'm less stressed. That's not shocking. I'd agree with beepboopbeep that I didn't do as well when I studied harder. But, that doesn't work for everyone. Some people grind out really good grades. Some people never go to class and get good grades. This isn't shocking—most exams are just reading and writing things quickly. That's not "innate" but it's also not super learnable. It's a skill you've either developed at this point or you haven't, and it's unlikely that you know whether you've developed that skill before you attend.
