How did Einstein really learn?

In fact, Albert Einstein from an early age showed phenomenal success in mathematics and physics. During his school years, he already knew these subjects to a much greater extent than the school curriculum required, and he received only excellent grades in physics and mathematics.


But where did this strange misconception come from, as if Einstein did not know mathematics after all? The fact is that Einstein did not get into the Swiss Polytechnic in Zurich at the first attempt. However, during the entrance exams he still passed physics and mathematics with the highest score, but did not reach the necessary results in some other subjects. In addition, a year later, at the age of 17, Einstein, having pulled up the other subjects, entered this university. Therefore, the reason for this myth is still not entirely clear.


It is also interesting to think about why this myth still exists and is not forgotten. Here it is simple. The fact that lazy people find excuses for themselves in such made-up stories. For example, those who do not do well at school and believe in the myth of Einstein, can say: "I'm like Einstein, I just do not strain before time, but someday, I will show what I can do...". But they won't show anything...
