I am currently a freshman in high school planning to attend college right after I graduate, but I'm in a strange situation. Math has always been an issue for me and I have never gotten better than a C, but my school has me lined up to take college level math next year. They say I cannot be moved down because I already have the necessary credits. I'm worried about how a bad grade will effect my GPA. What should I do?
A bad grade will effect your GPA and you want a good GPA. If you can’t be moved down, put extra effort into math the next three years because it WILL matter. Although it won’t effect you as much for state colleges, if your goals are in the T50, you need to grind to make sure that you get better scores.
Please ensure you study as hard as you can for the course before it occurs. You can do it, for sure! Keep going. You got this.
Hello! Try talking to your guidance counselor or college counselor if your school has one. Many times they are able to change your courses or influence others into helping you. If that does not work try seeing if your school offers free tutoring programs. Most of them are free or even 24/7 online. If you are planning to attend college right after you graduate a bad GPA will be a negative factor against you. Do your best to work hard and try to really overcome your fears. Maybe you could send a email to the teacher of your course and explain the situation. They may be able to help you as well. I hope this helps you.
From what I understand, your grades barely affect your GPA. Your GPA shouldn't fluctuate that much. The final grade, however, does show on your transcript.
