    Only Once

    I had never failed a class until I got into college.  It was last semester, my first semester. The class was Freshman Year Experience. It was worth one credit and we met once a week. I missed two classes and some assignments. I had, or better I should say HAVE problems...

    Failed Ap History

    I failed a semester of AP American History.  It wasn't the end of the world, and even though I will have to make up the credits, I am over my failure.  Failing a class doesn't mean I'm stupid or a bad person.  I've let myself get over it and I feel so much...

    Gym

    Yes, that is possible. The teacher refused to give me the grade I deserved, so I refused to do anything at all. I got a 18% for the year. I'm so proud of that. The lowest grade I ever got for an entire year.

    Physics In College

    I guess you can count it as failing. I withdrew from the class after the point in the semester where you automatically got a "withdraw pass" no matter what your grade. Unfortunately, I withdrew after that point and got a "withdraw fail" because of my...

    Ever since the 7th grade my grades started slipping. In 7th grade I started getting C's. Then, in 8th grade I started getting D's. Now, in high school I'm getting F's in English & reason for that is because I hate reading & my comprehension is bad. I got an F in biology & reason...

    I failed my first semester of Chemistry last

    year - got 48% overall. I did the exam for my second semester Chemistry exam three weeks ago. I was averaging 50% before the exam. Literally, 50.000%. So it could go either way. :P I'm definitely not doing Chem next year though. Thank god I'm a biology student!

    Failure Is A Right Of Passage

    No one likes to fail. However, not to fail deprives a person of experiencing how to overcome a problem. It's like walking, first one has to stumble a lot before one can make strides. So, no matter how many time you fall, take that one step until you can, in the end, accomplish...
