    Why not both?

    Also, it greatly depends. A lot. Not to mention that some people do better in certain subjects than others (I've proved this myself, I did awful while I studied humanities, was top of the class when I changed school and started studying STEM subjects).
    I don't think that it's so personal
    I don't think that it's irreversible
    Sometimes I feel like I'm a sentimental trooper.

    I think that to achieve a grade a lot of factors play a role:
    Of course, you need a little background in the subject you are studying, but there are a lot options of learning something in addition to the already known things.
    Family and/or friends should give a backup as they have to cope with your "short time" or "no time" undertaking activities in common for some time or that you cannot travel with them as they like.
    Most important is a strong self-will to achieve something, self-confidence, some kind of auto-suggestion "I will make it" (but only your own motivation, motivation from others can put you under pressure and build up "black walls"), also some kind of courage (depends on what and when you are studying), self-disciplin.

    Last but not least I think that IQ and age do absolutely play not always a significant role in it.
