    Wink Help needed for an underperformer

    I was wondering if I could get some help.
    When an underperformer performs below average, does then someone who performs above average is called an overperformer?
    I do have some doubts about calling such a brilliant performer.

    I've heard of overachievers ... Can it be a sort of a slangish word?

    Underperformer
    1.A student who does not perform as well as expected or as well as the IQ indicates
    2.A business that is less successful than expected
    Synonyms:
    nonachiever
    underachiever
    So, Overarchiever is a possible usage, in my opinion your suggestion of calling it as overperformer is possible,too.
