I never had Corpus Callosum , but I have hade similar experience.
I was alway in a lower learning grade level than the grade that I was in. From elementary all the way through high school, I was in special ed classes.

My seizures are active in my speech, language and memory centers of the brain . So I was slower at learning , comprehending , reading, and writing. Everyone in my class would be done before me. Most of the time I had homework.

Through all schools I had a IEP caseworker . I would do a IQ test and The caseworker would set a meet with my mom and I to see how much my grade level has changed in the different IQ areas , like Math , English and Reading.
Every year my grade level would go up at least by 1 grade .
