It takes a lot for me to admit to this, but I am failing a class. This is completely unlike me and I am so disappointed in myself. I also feel like I am disappointing those who care the most about me as well. Not only am I failing a class, but it happens to be one of the most important classes for my major. Without this class I cannot move on and will be stuck and confused. Although I am failing I am not the only one in my class.
I have though considered all my options. I have two options basically; withdraw and receive a W then retake the class, or risk getting a horrible grade. I met with my teacher last week to see where I am at. Basically we are currently 1/4 of the way through the points we can earn for the semester. So I do have time to improve, but how much I can improve is the question. My teacher basically told me that I may end with a C-. I will not be happy with that grade and have decided the first step of what I want to do.
We have another test on March 29th (the day before we can drop classes) and I am going to stick with the class until then. After I find out what I receive on the second test I will make the ultimate decision. I currently am planning on take one summer class, an Audit class. I got permission from the head of the accounting department to cancel the prereq of Intermediate 2. So if I end up dropping the class I am currently in I will be able to take both at the same time.
This in the end will lighten my load a little bit next semester as I already have to take two other accounting classes! Well there you have it, one of my biggest fears happening. I never thought I would fail a class or even come close to it, but it happened.
