Iwe been planning on studying Physics for a few years now. And well. I just got done with my first year of uni. And Iwe had a horrible time of it. First year is undecided major hence general intro courses into everything. The curriculum and amount of work required at this uni is very tough. Much more tougher then other universities in some cases. The intro courses are very detailed and for example what most unis call cal 3 is cal 2 in my university. Mechanics101 I got a C Cal 1 I got a B This semester had cal 2 and E&M. I have a feeling im failing both. Cal2 purely because i didnt put enough effort into it. E&M..well I t thought I put in a lot of effort there. But sigh. So heres the deal. Do I still love physics? Very much so. I feel E&M was simply amazing. I hate myself for doing so bad at it and not being able to understand it. But when I was there in class I Was absolutely stunned captivated by my professor. I know I like Physics because when most of my colleagues despise Physics and think its too hard, I am totally amazed by it. My first years been horrible in every regard more so because the one subject that I really love Im not good at. Should I let it go? Should I switch to some useless social science major or study commerce things I despise. I need serious advice nothing romantic. Can I still make a come back? We know doing Physics isnt engineering so 4 years down the track Im already one step behind. But to have a messed up gpa and the fact that the school that Im studying at isnt particularly renowned for its physics department doesnt help. Also, changing university isnt an option, just in case someone suggests that. While my academics in the past have been pretty strong Im not in a financial position to go abroad or study etc. I study in Pakistan in case I didnt mention that before.
