·  Principle of Understanding: This principle is concerned with the behavior, tactics and pattern of your teacher. The better you understand your teacher, the higher chance you will have, to come out with a better grade in his/her course. Some students tend to fail an examination, not because they did not read, but because they do not understand what the teacher require of them. During examinations, test, assignments and so on, some teacher may require you to explain your points succinctly or in a concise manner, other teachers may hate it when you give a short or brief explanation and will award you with a lower grade when you do that. You can understand your teachers better by simply asking them questions about the course, subject or topic they are teaching, the requirement base on their standards in order to score higher.

·  Principle of Continuous Reading and Practice: Practice makes perfect, leading to an improvement of performance. When you continuously read and practice what you are taught, you may tend to discover new reading techniques in order to understand better. When you familiarize yourself with a subject like mathematics, literature, English, by continuously reading or practicing it, this will make that subject very easy to understand.

·   Principle of Utility: Determination leads to success, the only way you can be determined or valiant is by setting a goal. The principle of utility postulates that the ability for a student to remember what he/she is being taught, depends on the usefulness of what is being taught. To be academically excellent, you must set the general goal and objective of the principle of utility, you must see what you learn very useful to you presently or in the future. This tends to boost your interest for the course, subject or topic, for instance when a student is taught mathematics, he/she should realize the importance and usefulness of mathematics even in real life situations, he/she should realize how mathematics is importance in every  job establishment, as every job establishment is concerned with the number of workers they have, how much do they earn weekly, monthly, annually etc. he/she should realize the importance of mathematics in engineering firms, as the knowledge of measurement, numerical models and other principle of mathematics is needed.

·   Principle of Transfer of Learning: This principle postulates that student who wish to be academically excellent should be able to apply what they have been taught to real life situations and should able to refer a little about what he/she has learn even during normal discussion or conversation. This leads to flexibility, therefore making it very difficult to forget what you learn.

 That first class student also mentions the importance of every single class in order to become academically excellent, in regards to her word; your first class degree depends on the class you attend and every other class after that, this is because, you never can tell what the teacher, lecturer has in mind concerning the course he/she teaches, cause it is only in class that he/she will pour out his/her deepest secrets about the course.
Another tip you should know in order to become academically successful is making a lot of research.
