This talk gives an insight about an exploratory study that investigates perceived waiting time of gifted high achieving honors students at university and the change of this perceived waiting time from their school days in secondary school. The focus lies in finding reasons for, experiences with, and coping strategies for waiting time in classes at the two types of institutions. Interviews with gifted university students were conducted and qualitatively analyzed.
