I'm currently a freshman in British University of Egypt. I'm studying Engineering and this is my first semester. In the BUE you start with preparatory year which is basically the combination of math 1, algebra, physics, chemistry, and mechanics etc.. I have my physics final tomorrow and I've studied a lot, I've solved all the tutorial sheets all the lecture questions, everything. The professor uploaded the final exam for 13-14 for us to try and solve (he also uploaded the answers). I've tried solving it over and over and over but I can't, I just can't figure out how to solve it. Only after looking at the answer do I understand, when I try solving it again without looking I just can't. My problem isn't in physics only it's in all the courses I'm currently taking. (Math I'm kind of good at). Let me give you more information about myself, my whole family are engineers (My father and Brother Civil Engineers, Sister and Grandmother Architectural Engineers, Mother and Grandfather Electrical Engineers). I just don't know where I fit in all of this. I just can't handle it, everyday I go to the university I just want to drop out or just want it all to end. I'm always stressed out and I have no idea how to handle all of this. After thinking too much I end up just leaving everything and just watch youtube videos or do something meaningless. My family didn't force to me study engineering but they definitely wouldn't agree on me studying anything else. I want to tell them I'm not doing great in engineering and I'm barely handling it, but they'll be disappointed and probably will get angry. HOW DO I HANDLE THIS? I feel I'm going crazy and this isn't the right path for me. I like engineering a lot don't get me wrong, I love understanding it but when I start solving problems I just can't do it for some reason. Is it because I'm dumb? Help me, please.
