Default Can most people understand advanced math?

Suppose you took a hundred or so babies at random and gave them optimal living conditions. Among other things, they get a healthy diet, a safe environment, and private tutors. Their life goal is to get a passing grade in a university-level math class such as linear algebra, differential equations, or multivariable calculus. Assume that they are sufficiently motivated and that none of them cheat.

Given those conditions, would more than half of them eventually pass? I think they would, but a lot of people I've talked to disagree.

edit: They are given unlimited attempts and do not have to pass the course by a certain age.
