    The reason why one loses interest in their studies is due to the fact that they are too dumb or immature to carry out decisions and often relied on their friends. This may result in peer pressure and causes the student to lose interest in their studies
    It all boils down to immaturity as well as the lack of parental support.
    Unlike most of my friends, I dislike gaming and i stick to a strict schedule, studying close to 4 hours every day. Whenever i wanna take a break, i would either exercise or play the piano. I realised that in order to succeed one must have a good education and my parents too, believe it was the only way that i can excel in life.

      Not all people who lose interest in their studies are too dumb or immature. I’ve been known to be decent in my studies and other things like sports and so on and I still lost interest in studying. Although I may not know the exact reason to why people lose interest in studying, it’s still not really okay for you to be calling people dumb. And I’m not taking this personally lol. I just don’t like it when I see people being judged when you don’t know what they are going through.. hehe *peace sign*
