    hard work but no progress

    I study hard but no progress yet. I am still a poor student. I want to express it correctly.

    Re: hard work but no progress

    "I study hard, but I've made no progress yet." (Present perfect)
    "I've been studying hard, but I haven't been making any progress."
    "Although I study hard, I haven't made any progress yet."
    "Even though I study hard, I don't seem to be able to make any progress." They are all natural. But you need "make progress".
    "I'm still a poor student" is OK.
