Rationale or to learn 'by heart'

I miss the rationale behind this. is this something to learn 'by heart'? as in, just learn these exceptions and you're good to go?... or is there some reasoning, eg. that without the accent it would be pronounced wrong.. this because of ?

Hola Robert

We have these verbs in a lesson to show that they don't follow exactly the general rules in a certain conjugation - instead they take an accent at the end of the verb. It'd be a mistake to miss that accent - missing that accent will change the pronunciation of the word and it would be incorrect.

I want to ask the same question because I don’t think you have answered it. Is there a reason why the exceptions work differently, because of stress etc?
