Illyaria Posted November 18, 2015 Share Posted November 18, 2015 Hey guys! I've never had trouble at school. I'm usually really good at making positive grades. I have a GPA of 3.7 which could have been better but I went through a depression last semester and didn't try as hard in my classes as I should have. I'm starting to get really discouraged. My physics teacher is not helping. He claims that if I can't pass his class, I should forget about med school in general but I had my heart set on being a PA. My lab grades are really good. As and Bs. My quiz grades are As. However, the quizzes are only 5%, labs 25% and tests are 70%. My test grades are god awful. The first test our teacher said that out of his 6 years teaching physics, they have never been so bad. The highest grade was a C. I still had time to bring up my (now) F grade because of the test. My next test went up 20 points but still wasn't great. My grade was 2 points from a D. I really hoped I could get a C overall. I studied like crazy. We don't have physics tutors here. Just took my test and I know I failed it. I wanted to cry. Nothing I studied was on the test except one problem. ONE! He didn't even put questions up there he said to review! One of the questions was something we never even went into detail about! The PA school I'm looking at doesn't require physics but I wanted to apply to more than one school. It was a OR choice. So, am I getting my hopes up about being a PA or is it still possible? Failing physics is going to put me back a whole year graduating. I'm so discouraged now.
