Students should concentrate more on gaining knowledge and a grasp over the concepts instead of just scoring marks in examinations, said psychiatrist Vishal Reddy.

At a special seminar ‘Art of Parenting’, organised at the Bloomingdale Playschool and Kindergarten on Thursday, he explained the various scientific methods used to gauge the intelligence levels of a student.

“Getting good marks is not a sign of intelligence,” said Dr. Vishal Reddy. Language, communication skills, technical skills, logical skills and inter-personal skills were a sign of intelligence, he said. Parents should try to spend more time with their children to increase the bonds between different members of the family, he said.
