I'm failing all my exams, the highest mark I've got this term is a D, I'm thinking of dropping out but if I dropped out I have no idea what I would do, I just can't deal with the stress, it's depressing me so much.

    I was actually just talking to a friend of mine on the phone who is also struggling. He finished his first quarter with a 2.1 GPA. I highly suggest finding a tutor or maybe talking to your profs. They probably don't want to see you fail, and if all else fails drop one or two of your hard classes and concentrate more on the easier ones.

    That's a good idea actually, thank you! I can't drop any subjects, I'm on the lowest you can take. But I will definitely talk to my teachers, I can't be the only one struggling :')

    If you got an A before I'd say it's definitely worth a shot!

    Good luck! It's scary stuff, I'm probably finding it so difficult because I'm the youngest in all my classes, everyone else is like 18/19 and I just turned 16 :')

    hi

    i really understand where you're at right now, and what i would recommend is.

    take a time out if its a year so be it, the first thing you need to teach yourself is that you can relax.

    when i was going to school it was pressure none stop, i still have nightmares about it.

    and guess what i'm still alive at 54 and happier than i could ever dream of being.

    the only person that really puts pressure on you is yourself, relax, take a year out.

    the human body is the most resiliant machine ever.

    so relax relax relax.

    best wishes

    cyril

    once you decide to relax, its amazing what it does for your brain, its the stress that stumps you. lots of luck and relaxation, life is what YOU make it.

    College in general. I got a D in Sociology the other day, but all my other results have been E's and even U's, I'm falling behind in everything, I have 2 essays due tomorrow that I haven't even started because I've been doing other work, and I have an exam today that I couldn't revise for because my Internet wasn't working when I planned to revise and I have no idea what the topics are because the only way I could find out was on the website, and I have my English exam tomorrow that if I fail I might even get kicked out anyway or I'd get more pressure out onto me. I have a presentation also due Friday that I have no idea what to do for! And a number of outside problems, like my bulimia and my dad's cancer progressing and my mum's always stressed because of her illness so we're constantly arguing..
