I know like it seems to be a big deal at the moment, but I promise you that it is not the end of the world. I live in the UK so the education system is slightly different but in my first year at college, I failed 4 out of 5 classes and I had to repeat the year. Having the strength to carry on is what is important. Work hard for the Jan exams and all being well, you will pass with flying colours and it wont be a problem any more. If your mum has no faith then that must be REALLY hard, but use the feelings you get from that to fuel your desire to prove her wrong. When you make it though grad school, your mum will be SO proud.
