Who was Elsa? What advise did she give Albert to get his diploma?
Elsa was Einstein's cousin who used to live in Berlin where her father had his business. She believed that one must learn just enough to pass exams. She observes that one does not have to know anything or understand what is being taught but just be able to repeat it in the exams. To learn to repeat things like a parrot and reproduce it in the exam hall. Elsa does not read anything other than what is prescribed in her school,she has no thirst for knowledge and will not study anything that is not required as per her coursework. She advised Einstein to do the same and just get his diploma because kids dumber than him would get it easily without putting in any effort.
