1. Winston Churchill
Our gallery opens a classical case, the naughty Winston, the older son of the aristocratic parents. He had no love for education at all times. One can not say that he was hopelessly stupid because the teachers periodically saw him in a secret corner with a book that was inappropriate for his age.
However, to learn lessons, to work at classes, and to work in any way, Churchill refused to categorically. Winner Winston was later awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Churchill writes that the school has nothing in common with education, it is a supervisory institution where children teach the basic skills of coexistence.
2. Vladimir Mayakovsky
Soviet literary scholars did not raise Vladimir Mayakovsky’s bad performance in order not to give a bad example to the pioneer, or to call them a revolutionary outburst.
3. Sergey Korolyov

The future financial magnate could not get 2 words together, stinged, groaned, and despairing every time he was inviting him to the blackboard.
5. Isaac Newton
Isaac Newton was in the classroom worse than ever before to beat her classmate. After that, Newton decided to defeat her with her knowledge, and a few months later she became the best student in the class.

7. Ludwig van Beethoven
Beethoven wrote with mistakes, and divorce and multiplication did not overcome it, just as Alexander Dumas’ father.
8. Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein, the founder of the theory of relativity and the Nobel Prize laureate, were studying at school with a very good progress. His parents confessed to their acquaintances that they had no illusions with him and only hope that he could at least find a simple, ordinary job.
9. Alexander Pushkin
Pushkin was very weak at studying in the lyceum and was crying over arithmetic classes. After attestation, he was second to one at the time of his graduation.
10. Anton Chekhov
Yes, the most authoritative of the Russian writers, frankly speaking, did not start well. She had been in the gymnasium twice to study for the second year in the same class.
