I'm about halfway through my associates program in science and math. This semester I'm on academic warning and I fell behind on the material in the first two months. If I don't raise my GPA enough by the end of the semester I face a situation where I would have to sit out for at least a semester before I could resume my program. My situation is really stressing me out because I want to transfer into a physics program after I finish my associates program, but my bad work habits are holding me back. I enjoy science and math and when I do practice the material on a consistent basis it's straightforward to me. This is simply an issue of developing better work habits. However, I know getting into a physics program requires little room for error, so what are my chances now if it is likely I have to sit out a semester? Comments from physicists and academic advisers would be much appreciated. Addendum: I haven't taken the physics and calculus courses that are required of my program yet. I've been getting good grades in my math prerequisites (i.e. algebra 1, algebra 2 and precalculus) and astronomy courses.
