    I got perfect As while taking 3 classes and studying for 1.5-2 hours a day in my last semester of university and in earlier semesters I got perfect As studying 3 hours a day and taking 4 classes a semester

    I don't think you can equate time allocated to grade earned in that way.  Yes, a college student should allocate a couple hours a day to reading, writing, studying, and completing assignments for each class they take.  Doing that will give a student a better chance of mastering the content of any given class.  That noted, some students will never earn an A in some classes regardless of how much time the put into studying.  Other students can ace a class with significantly less preparation.

    That depends if there is a particular subject that you don’t really enjoy or not good at. For example, my oldest son is not really fond of English composition. So he had to devote a ton of time to get an a in that course.  When I was a university student, I had to spend a ton of time studying for my math 101 class. And I ended up getting a C+.  That’s because the course grade was based entirely on three multiple-choice exams and you didn’t get any points for showing your work.
