Hello, I'm really anxious and worried. My school finally added a grades history section on powerschool. I got to see all of my grades and saw my final exam grades from freshman year. I passed half of them but failed my algebra (40%) and biology exam (58%).I got a 66 in History. I'm so worried that it will affect the way colleges look at me. I got all A's and B's that year and about 2 C's. I failed my final exams and now I'm embarrassed and really worried! How will final exams affect me?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Colleges will only look at your final overall grade. They don't look at individual assignment grades. If your overall grade is still high, then there shouldn't be much worry. Also, colleges look for a spike. If you do better in your next years, then they will also take that into consideration.
