Failing a College Class Is No Big Deal - Relax
Itâ€™s been 3 years since I graduated college and I still have
dreams (nightmares?) that Iâ€™m failing a class and wonâ€™t graduate. If you can
answer, when was your 1st big fail? Most likely it wasnâ€™t until after college.
I donâ€™t mean bombing tests or failing a class. I mean trying to solve a problem
or complete a task that wasnâ€™t scripted. Wish I had been taught how to fail
smart & spring back hard.
And this is the problem with parents today who do not let their
children fail or get hurt. They need the little bumps now to know how to deal
with big bumps later.
Itâ€™s hard as a parent to watch you, kids fail. Mostly because it
will take more time and hold up what parents need to get done. Speaking from
experience, a school needs to be that sandbox of discovery.
From a parentâ€™s point of view â€œI let my kids stumble and fail
all the time. Life will only get harder! Sometimes I really have to hold myself
back from fixing it for them.â€
Do you ever feel like
is weird; Iâ€™m failing a class I paid to take
is a constant battle between my desire to nap and my fear of failing a class. I
feel that naps are always the right choice.
am failing all my high school and colleges class.. Iâ€™m having such a bad mental
breakdown I could die
Iâ€™ve been feeling insecure about myself, sad, my face is breaking out nonstop,
Iâ€™m failing my college class, and Iâ€™ve been acting like a terrible friend. I
just want to move on with my life and be completely happy without any worries,
is that too much to ask?
school: Okay I just need a 70% or higher to keep my B in the class I can do
that. College: WELL I can't check if I have a C or if I'm failing so either I
ace the final or I lose 10,000 dollars. Is there a tall minority loan
6. If you
can afford it, donâ€™t work through college. If itâ€™s a choice for you
I will let you know the secret: there is no college
experience. Youâ€™re doing nothing but go to class, working shifts, and
failing classes because you don't have time to do your homework
be honest, failing a class isnâ€™t the biggest concern I have because I know I
can retake it and get a better grade, but itâ€™s the effect it does on my GPA and
how my GPA is having a high impact on my financial aid (I
canâ€™t afford college) Iâ€™m just broke and stupid
failed a class last semester for my first time in college and barely passed the
other two, and this semester I'm failing my English course, but at
this point, I no longer care
really need a break from academia because my mental
and physical health is in shambles
bombed a final exam and ended up failing that class. That's a first for me, and
I realized I've been treating college like a game instead of a step forward in
life and probably going to pass my next few exams barely. Reality hit hard, and
now I know what to do next time. For being someone who usually has the smarts
to sit in class and retain information well I am not very good at using the
book to look up more in-depth stuff, and that's a significant weakness. Air
that with bad study habits and I am essentially setting myself up for failure
and not utilizing the fact I can be super smart if I did study. The same shit
happened to me this semester. First time I've failed a class. Starting to
realize that this is something that needs more attention and it needs to rise
up the importance list.
Even with all these in your mind, just know that there's still
time and options to help your failing grades before the end of the semester.
By strategizing well and making sure everything goes as
planned then you will realize that the semester is long enough to save
that GPA even if the situation feels hopeless with a deep dark end.
You do not have to wait until the senior year of college where
youâ€™ll be failing a class up until the last week, and that final determines
your degree or depression. You can start making small changes that will
ultimately change the way your grades appear on your transcript.
Also, not everything will be taught in class and some things you
will have to research on your own. I can recall sitting in a classroom waiting
for lab to start and there were these freshmen talking about how they were
failing a class because their professor didnâ€™t teach them how to write a lab
report and I was like OHHHH BOOBOO GOOD LUCK WITH THE REST OF YOUR
COLLEGE CAREER. One thing you should understand is that America
doesnâ€™t have fair & balanced education and this means that you need to do
extra work to get that good grade. Whatever is taught in class might be
examined but in small proportions, what your professor is aiming is to
literally fail you and by testing questions indirectly â€œnot as they were
taughtâ€ then that means digging dip into research to get the missing 20% that
is crucial if at all you need that â€œA.â€
If you're just beginning college or have found yourself
struggling, join us as we give you some helpful tips on what bad habits to
avoid, where to go, and how to survive college. Read below to find out more
information that will be helpful!
How to bounce back from failing or before failing a college class
1. Avoid being a chronically
absent student in the class (attend 80% of lectures).
2. If youâ€™re already in danger of failing a
class, you can opt to withdraw from the class and just get a W on your
transcript. Iâ€™m pretty sure thatâ€™s an option at most (all?) colleges. Because
of your unwillingness to go to class, you will have set yourself behind at
least a year in school, but you know now what to avoid.
3. To keep that GPA looking good, be
vigilant about group papers. You can really fail a class at the expense of
other people. And I keep wondering why they keep assigning group
papers. As juniors ... and in COLLEGE
4. Even though we try to hide it, there is
this feeling of internal fulfillment when you see someone fail in something
that you tried before and failed. That is why the next thing many University
students say after checking and failing a course is "how many students
fail?â€ it is called Justifying once failure with other peoples failure to avoid
emotional worry. Do not think of failing when you see or notice your
friends failing, just learn from your own experience, and youâ€™ll avoid having
negative thoughts that could otherwise lead to failure even after doing almost
everything right including attending all classes.
5. Pick an easy major and
avoid failing out quite easily. Not many people care what your GPA is if
you graduated from a prestigious university.
6. Don't go down without a
fight. Speak to your teacher about extra credit so
that you can avoid confrontation about failing a class.
7. TURNING â€œI CANâ€™Tâ€ INTO â€œI CANâ€ by making
sure you do the following:
a) Ask your professor for a list of learning
objectives for the unit.
b) Practice using past assessments,
quizzes, homework or labs material in a low-risk environment. All these can
help you in mastering important objectives that will definitely be tested.
c) Prepare for summative
assessments by practicing questions from past unit tests. You can find
the material in the library or online university portals which run on the same
curriculum as your own university. For example, if you are in Florida, you can
research from portals within the same geographical area. Search on Google for â€œState
University System of Florida Librariesâ€
d) After your assessment is marked, go
through the questions you failed and get assessments from your friends who
managed to get the questions right. This will serve as a test map to master the
objectives that you didnâ€™t accomplish to grasp initially.
8. Power of fear: Does your fear cause you
to stay at home instead of getting up and going to a class youâ€™re afraid of
failing? Does fear cause you to miss a Childish Gambino concert in
fear of failing a class? Don't let the fear of failing classes keep you from
going out. Keep up with your grades and avoid what can be avoided! You can
always make up for lost time, but you need to actually have the discipline to
do that and to always recover time lost studying without having to feel lost in
life right now feeling like schools been nothing but a waste of my time.
How to recover from failing a college class
1. My name is Tyler. I made the mistake of
not taking my classes seriously and thinking I could cut corners while waiting
to do every assignment at the last minute. This is my second attempt at Comp 1,
and I am confident I can help alleviate your problems before they occur.
2. Hey, everyone, I'm Madison! Last
semester, my test scores dropped because when I got home, I jumped on the TV
instead of studying. I thought I had plenty of time to study, or I was smart
enough to pass. I learned the hard way and forced myself to focus and put my
3. Just dropped a class to avoid failing
it. Iâ€™m really getting the full college experience this year.
4. So I've had to work my ass off to bring
my grade back up. It's stressful as hell because this will be the final report
before I graduate in May. If I don't get my grade back to passing, then I will
not graduate. All the tests make up a majority of my average grade. Being in
honors means I get more work, harder work. And I am expected to keep my average
grade high to avoid being removed from the class. Not only will fail a required
class impact my college applications, but it'll also be worse since it's an
Failing a college class isn't the end of the world and
it may not be a disaster after all, but there are things you should be doing to
avoid it and even if youâ€™ve already failed a class then just know
that you can always bounce back even much stronger; its common sense that
Professors are aware that many students will avoid working hard in a class
because of the risk involved... and thatâ€™s why most professors make
failing harder work than passing. Itâ€™s a no brainier
that nothing bonds people together like the fear of failing a class and nothing
brings a class together like the fear of failing the first exam.
