I'm in high school and my english final was basically analyzing a short story and then writing an essay on what I thought the theme/message was. I completely and utterly screwed up, it was a really challenging piece but the conclusion I came to turned out to be completely wrong, and in hindsight the evidence I used wasn't even the strongest. I don't know what to do, I had a solid A leading up to the final and I really loved the class, but this is just devastating. At best she might give a C, and that's being optimistic. Obviously it was a very subjective test but still I mean I can't believe I messed up that badly. Even with a C on the test that lowers my grade down to like a borderline A-/B+. What should I do? Talk to my professor right away? It hasn't been graded yet but I already know I did horribly.
