Rubic cube doesn't really relate to your Academic Gift.

To be honest. I not really... Academically gift


if you think so. :D

since this is an asian forum, here's an asian girl doing a rubik's cube behind her back;

The Rubix cube is all about your ability to memorize things. I can solve the in around 5 mins, and all you have to do is memorize the patterns on how to solve it.

I pwned..Enough said..
I tend to understand things easier if there's link to logic to it.
Like owning on test, I require only small amount of studying compared to the recommended average amount.
However, I can't solve a rubic cube.

Can i say how academically gifted i wasn't. I'd hate to think this was a special club.

I agree with nene... getting good grades does not neccessarily mean general intelligence, nor do bad grades mean people are thick. People are defined by others by their grades, something i am all too aware of, but i suppose they are fools.

I'm academically very useless. Hard work does nothing for me in my weak points, and little in my strong points. All around i'm a bit of a failure. I've got good vocab, i wasn' t completely useless in french and music (actually i was quite good), and IT took the piss. I'm also good at arithmetic, and working out convulted ways of getting the answer in maths. I'm quite logical... but my grades have always been mediocre at best, but mainly fails. I really don't understand Science very easily, and i'm terrible at essay writing... that basically screws everything

Exactly! People assume I'm smart b/c I have good grades, but the only key to good grades is work--and sometimes studying.


Well, by academically gifted I mean that you just naturally excel at math, reading, etc. and don't necessarily have to study/try hard to be excel at it. But yea, I guess grades aren't always a great indicator of academic giftedness.

Never been a hard worker but manged to pull off a first class honours in chemistry with a bit of dedication in my final year of university. Nothing more satisfying than extra letters with your name. In three years time I hope to have more, going for that doctorate!

Oh. So I don't really excel at anything, but I'm better at math than at most other subjects. probably just b/c I like it better

It doesn't measure academic gift or intelligence, just how well you can memorize. And your status message is creepy lol.

I'm smart, A average and Im taking AP classes next year. I'm sure I'd make higher grades if I was motivated more. It's funny since I ALWAYS get compared to my perfect siblings and get yelled at if I make a B. Math is my weaker subject though. I have not won any awards lately except the honor roll. haha I don't know my class rank but my class is about 2400 + so I need to bust my ass these last two years to be around the top 10 or 20 %.
