Well, this comprehensive lass ran out of brilliance and ability long before the second year. I think you're over-generalising.

It took me until the first year of the PhD, but it's a bloody annoying wall to run into, and my metaphorical nose still hurts.

What she said. You can't take 600 people who were all top of their class, put them together, and expect them to still all be top of the class. Maybe you did stay up there, in which case good for you, but hard work and life experience can't buy you that kind of brilliance any more than money can.
