Dont let one bad test grade get you down, I took Chemistry last semester and did pretty bad on a couple of tests but I still managed a B, and I'm taking Biology now and the same applies....in lab we've had 4 tests so far....I received a C, F, C, B, I let the anxiety take over and I missed questions that I knew the answer to. But once my grade averages out at the end it will hopefully be a B. Dont let the one test get to you, you are not stupid. One bad test doesnt mean you will flunk out of the class. Doesnt it irritate you when there's this one person in the class that makes A's on everything, and just makes you feel low? That was my problem once, I was letting the grades that others were making effect me also, so now I dont even ask what other's made, I'm only concerned with myself.
Celey, I was very hard on myself while getting my AA degree. I got straight "A's" and then a "B" had me crying all the way home. I put a stop to that. I asked myself if I had done the best I could. The answer was yes. I realized there was nothing else I could have done.
Then as someone else on this thread mentioned, Biology was difficult. The teacher didn't like me and my grades plummeted. All you can do is your best. Don't concentrate too much on your grades. Just do your best and everything will be fine!
I was just like Aries, I got 1 B+ in school, (Nursing School) when my husband was having major surgery and I had to study in his hospital room. I had 4 children at home and I cried and beat myself up for being a failure. I did end up with a 3.97 grade point average but I wanted that 4.0. Well it did not happen and all these years later it really doesn't matter.
No one after asked to see my grades just my RN license. So no this does not mean you are a failure. Be proud of all the good grades you have earned and don't let the one pull you down. You will make it, I promise.
