What can I do to catch up?

I am currently a sophomore in high school and am failing a few classes, not only am I failing but I have a sure feeling I won't pass the class or test. What can I do to be able to catch up so I don't have to take three extra classes?

First, get help. I recommend speaking with your parents and then checking to see if you school has peer tutoring systems. If they don't, consider finding an online tutor or supplements. It can be embarrassing, but it's best to get help as soon as you're struggling.

Second, if you do fail several classes, there may be a way to take summer classes. Though not fun, this would prevent you from having to take 3 extra classes next school year. If you do have to retake, you will need to focus on those classes and study diligently.

I hope this helps. You can do this! Please lmk if you have any questions.
