Why You Have Poor Result Even After Studying

There are a number of possible reasons that students get poor grades, even after studying.
Some are external factors, such as the subject matter is too difficult, the teacher is hard to understand, and problems at home. Other reasons have to do with student attitudes, such as didn’t do homework and goofed off in class. Finally, there are reasons related to personal issues, such as test anxiety and problems concentrating.

If you have been getting poor grades and you see the reason for it, you can try to rectify the situation and get back on the right track.

Questions you may have include:
  • What are external reasons for poor grades?
  • What are attitude reasons for poor grades?
  • What are personal issues reasons for poor grades?
This lesson will answer those questions.

External factors for poor grades

External factors that affect your grades are somewhat out of your control. If the subject is too difficult or you have an ineffective teacher, you might have to drop the course, if you can.

Subject matter too difficult

It is possible that you took a course where the subject matter was too difficult for you to understand. Sometimes the pace is too fast for you to keep up. Another problem is that you did not learn required material in previous classes.
In college, you are able to drop out of the class if it is too difficult. But if you can’t drop a class, seek help. Let your teacher know you are having problems, and perhaps you can get some help with the class. That is why it is good to be selective in picking courses to take.

Teacher not very good

Some teachers should not be teachers.
Some may have a heavy foreign accent that makes it difficult to understand. Others can’t explain things in a clear manner. And some may not want to explain things at all. They say, “You should have learned that last year, so I’m not going to explain it over again.”
There are also teachers who don’t like certain students, and that can affect their grades. But also, some students don’t like certain teachers and thus may not cooperate in class.
Having a poor teacher can make it difficult to get a good grade in the course. But it is not an excuse for failing the course. The best thing to do is to make the most of it this term, but then try to get a better teacher the next semester.

Difficult study environment

Some students have a difficult study environment at home. Perhaps there is too much noise or not a place to do required homework.
In such a situation, you may have to do much of your studying and homework at school or in the library.

Poor attitudes lead to poor grades

If you have poor attitudes toward school and studying, it can result in getting poor or failing grades.

Lack of motivation

Sometimes you can lack the motivation to do well in school.
One big reason for a lack the motivation is that you have no dreams of what you want to do or can see no benefit from going to school.
It is good to have dreams.

Didn’t do homework

One of the biggest reasons students fail is because they didn’t study or do their homework.

Goofed off

Some students often skip classes. Others attend classes but don’t pay attention. Finally, some simply goof off during class.

Miscellaneous poor attitudes

There are also some miscellaneous poor attitudes that can affect your grades. They include when you:
  • Want to punish your parents
  • Fear success
  • Don’t like the subject
  • Don’t like school
  • Are bored
Note that there is nothing listed about you not being smart enough to succeed.

Personal issues

Personal issues can also affect your grades. Procrastination and putting off tasks can affect your grades. Also, not being good in taking tests is a big factor in getting poor grades.


Some students put off tasks such as doing homework or studying for a test by doing something else in its place. They make excuses for doing work.
Procrastination is a habit that is difficult to overcome.

Has problems taking tests

Although grades are usually based on test scores and sometimes on homework grades and class participation, there are reason behind the fact that those scores may be poor or less than desired.
Not being good in taking tests or being shy about class participation can affect your grades, but they also can be corrected, and teachers usually realize that your performance is not from lack of trying.
Inyang always handed in excellent homework, but when it came to tests, he did not fair very well. In fact, he failed the final exam.
His teacher could see that Inyang knew the material and was a hard-worker, but he just wasn’t good in taking tests. After thinking it over, the teacher still gave Jin Yee a top grade in the class.
Doing poorly in tests because you did not pay attention or study is inexcusable and is just setting yourself up for poor or failing grades. Perhaps something is missing in your self-esteem, because it indicates you really don’t care about your grades. Or, it could be that you don’t have a clue that you need to work to get rewards
