Computer science or die?

  1. Oct 19, 2012 #1
    I'm currently pursuing a degree in computer science...

    my requirements to enter into the department are a 3.0 GPA average in Calc 1 and 2, Eng 1 and 2, and Physics 1 and 2.

    I currently have B's in everything except calc 2 and physics 1...but i am currently retaking physics 1 at the moment. This means that i have to get an A in physics 1 this semester, to enter into the department of engineering and start my computer science classes.

    Here's the issue...I got a 100 on my first Physics test...i took the next test today and got a 70 on it, which makes me worried i won't pass it with an A....I figured out the math and basically i have to get an A on the next test and an A on the final exam in order to achieve the correct GPA requirements...

    There isn't much i can do except try my best at this point, but i'm concerned that if i don't get the grade i need in physics i will have to either spend a whole other semester retaking calc 2 or some other class and get either an a or b in it or switch my major, or go to another university with lower requirements (not likely).

    I really want to do computer science and have found i really enjoy programming, and I honestly don't see myself being interested in any other area of engineering...

    Any advice???

    Not sure what you want us to say. Try to work harder and study more efficiently.
