    I Came Close

    To my mother, the unforgiveable school sin was failure in one class or another. This became more so after my sister struggled through high school. My brothers and I were expected to clear at least a "D" (last possible passing grade) but we were to PASS. No leeway, no exceptions...

    I have a 3.75 GPA because I got a B in

    sociology, a C in Pre-Calc 2, and a C in Pre-Calc 3. I have to take Bio 1,2,3; Chem 1,2,3; and Calc 1,2,3. I am dead. I'm not going to transfer anywhere good. I want to quit school. And I really hate math.

    Emotions Can Really Get In The Way Of Your Performance In School

    I currently have two Fs. It doesn't help that my mother continues to print out my PowerSchool report, brandishing it in front of my face like a knife each time I crumple up the highlighted, circled and marked paper and throw it in the wastebasket. That just drags things out...

    Let me just say that I'm not the kind of person

    who freaks out over a B+ (well, depending on what class it is). On our first algebra 2 test of the year, I forgot to study the night before and as a result didn't remember any of the material. I got lucky on a few problems, but I still only scored a 15/25, and that was with the...

    Still As Bad

    I've never done well in school and for uni, it took me 7 years to get my bachelor's degree! Yeah, 7 hard years but it's gone to waste 'cos I'm more of a tradesman than a scholar.

    Why Do They Matter?

    John Taylor Gatto expresses legitimate points in regards to how our school system works. We are taught to put so much effort into obtaining a grade, rather than focusing on any content. Grades have the potential to determine what our future lives will be like. They (along with...

    I used to be an A-B student,

    and now I'm a B-D student. It's awful. My lack of motivation, depression, and anxiety get in the way of everything.

    Used to Get Them Quite a Lot.

    I used to get bad grades all the time.  Pretty much since about 5th grade on and off.  There were random years where I'd do really well, and then there were the years where I just didn't care.  I know now that the reason was my depression.  I had been...

    That Is Totally Me

    I Couldn't Care Less

    As a young kid I often got good grades, which continued until I became 15. I didn't need to do any homework when I was young and never got used to doing any homework either, which probably is the reason for my bad grades. I'm confident I can get A's and B's for every subject if...
