Academic Overachievement

Academic overachievement is when a person reaches a level of academic success that is beyond the level that was predicted for them. A prediction of academic success is normally based on factors such as socioeconomic status, family education history, and results of intelligence tests. For the most part these are subjective judgements that can be proven false by the effort and desire to achieve academically or unforeseen opportunities presented to the individual.
