Ten Qualities a Good Student Must Possess

If you think of a society, its greatest assets are obviously the young people. And among these young people, the most precious one is obviously the good students. There are many students in a society. What makes a good student different from others? What are the qualities that a good student must possess in order to emphasize the term “good”? Are the students who get an “A” grade in every subject the real good students? There are many students who get an A by adopting unfair means. Can you refer these students as good ones? The answer is obviously “No”. For being a real “good” student one needs to have some qualities for sure. With those qualities, a student becomes a good citizen and serves the nation in future. Here are Ten qualities that make a good student different from others.

1. Self Discipline:

It is the most important quality. Actually it leads to the foundation of being a good human being which is the prerequisite for serving the country. By self discipline, we refer that a person thinks about every word as well as action and then make the right choices for themselves as well as for the others. Each of the work will be in a disciplined manner. One will not mix up with the other. In this way, a student can start his journey of serving the nation.

2. Respecting Others:

You must remember a thing. If you don’t respect people, they will not respect you. That’s why it is important to respect the others. You will need to treat a person in the same way you want to be treated by that person. By doing so, you can get a goodwill among people and make a place of your own.

3. Perseverance:

When you are talking about good students, perseverance is one of the most important factors that will come forward. Without perseverance, it is not possible to become successful and if you are not successful, no one will remember you. There will be no possibility of leading the nation in any sector. With perseverance, you get the quality of sticking with a particular thing. If you stick with a particular thing, then you will definitely succeed one day. So if you want to make yourself separate from others, you must possess perseverance within yourself.

4. Citizenship:

Any good student must possess citizenship. If you do not follow the rules and regulations of the society, you will never be able to make yourself a good example in front of the others. And when you are unable to do that, how can the society get benefited from you?

5. Compassion:

If you are thinking about leading the others and serving your nation, you must be compassionate. If you are not kind towards others and abuse the others verbally as well as physically, will there be any difference between you and a wicked person? Good and bad cannot stay together at a place. So you cannot act like the bad persons when you are known as a good human being to others.

6. Integrity:

With integrity, you will get the chance of doing the best thing for yourself. You will be able to make your choice and help yourself to become the best at your chosen thing. What more do you need to be successful?

7. Responsibility:

If you are not responsible, how can you expect to be an icon for the others? In every part of our life, there is responsibility. You will have to fulfill all the responsibilities. And in order to be a good student, you must be responsible. Only then the nation can be benefited from you.

8. Trustworthiness:

This is a must quality for someone who is the future of the nation. People should believe you even with their eyes closed. They should believe that you will never do anything wrong and if you ever do any such thing, you will immediately correct it.

9. Fairness:

You must be fair in order to be a good leader. If you are not fair, you will not be able to lead the others in the path of good. And then the society will head towards darkness. Then how can you become good?

10. Honesty:

There goes a saying “Honesty is the best policy”. The saying is right indeed. When you are honest, you will be clear to yourself what you want to do and what you will be doing. There will be no hesitation. This is very important for being a successful leader.

With these qualities, a student can certainly withstand the pressure and expectations of the family as well as the nation. So if you wish to be a good student in your life, try from now to adapt these qualities.

Thank you Sariya. If this article helped you to become a good student then it is a little success of my work. Your comment influence me to work hard on this kind of hub in future.

too good and helped me to become good students

“Real” good students are the heart of any society. And for your body to be in a good state, the heart must in a stable and healthy state. I thank the hub author for mentioning these core qualities that helps to build up stable and healthy heart for the society.

All the mentioned qualities have their own distinctions. Lots of books have been written separately on each of these qualities. Apart from all the mentioned qualities, I think punctuality (though it comes under self-discipline) is a quality that a good student must possess. With punctuality, you can distinguish yourself from most good students. There are many good students who have good track records but they are not up to the mark regarding punctuality. Because being totally punctual needs continuous practice. With years of practice, you can develop strict punctuality.

Overall a great hub from the author. Students who want to do good should read this post.

Indeed these qualities make a student distinctive from the others. Good students are always the greatest asset of a society. Because they are the ones who will be the future leaders of the society. They will be the one who will lead people in forming a good and consolidated community. So the qualities mentioned by the author are must for the leaders. The combination of these qualities helps the students to prevent themselves for being faltered at important occasions. They can take the right decisions when needed and thus carry out all their works successfully.

While good students are important for the society, they are also important for their families. In fact, their training of playing crucial roles in the society starts from the family. The family can play an important role in developing these qualities. Thus the student will be good from the very young age and go on to become something notable.

Such important suggestions you make...I have been a student all of my life and still consider myself one even though I am not in a formal setting these days.

One trait that held me in good stead the most was self was easy to go play cards rather than work on my studies and I did some of that...but my main focus was getting the tools I would need for the future.

Well said... Angels are on the way to you this morning ps

It"s OK Mike. I think it was a misunderstanding. But thank you very much for reading my hub and commenting. And I am waiting for your coming hub.

THEmikeLO on February 28, 2013:

I apologize, I may have worded my comment in a confusing way. I actually agree most with your point on perseverance! I firmly believe that without perseverance people will have difficult times accomplishing anything in their life, especially when it comes to school work! Sorry for the confusion.

TANJIM ARAFAT SAJIB (author) from Bangladesh on February 28, 2013:

Thank you for your comment. Could you please explain why you are not agreeing with that point, "perseverance?" I think that is very much important not only for a student but also for all. Because our life is all about up and down. You know, "Joy and sorrow come by turn." When you do not get success then you may frustrated and give up that things if you have no Perseverance.

THEmikeLO on February 27, 2013:

I could not agree more with these 10 qualities, especially with perseverance! Great post
