There is no ruling out hard work, commitment and dedication as one of the age long secrets to success. You can accomplish anything you want to accomplish with hard work. However, even at that, many might still find it difficult to cope with the demands of their course of study, partly due to the varying ability of the lecturers and quality of lectures. The school association can play a role in this regard.
Departmental associations and Faculty associations alike can help improve the grades of the students belonging in such associations by organizing tutorials. At such tutorials, students in higher levels who are both intelligent and have the talent of tutoring will lecture the ones in lower grades/levels on the courses that seem the toughest.
Association EXCOS will get these selected individuals prepared and motivated. Also, they have to get the students to benefit from the tutorials informed about the arrangement and the days and time for it. Such information can be passed across through bulk SMS.
