I am tired of getting sub-par scores on exams. I do not know what I am doing wrong, or if I am simply just not intelligent enough to handle the material. For the last test in Physics I spent 4-5+ hours/day for 4-5 days studying prior by doing practice problems, reviewing material I do not understand and seeing my teacher for help. However, it still came out to be a very low B. When I am reviewing I feel like I am understanding. I feel like I understand almost everything I am doing on the tests. Yet I still lose a lot of points on the stuff I understood very well the days prior. And it is not due to silly mistakes, it is me doing something completely wrong even though I felt I had I am tired of this because nothing seems to be working. I do not want to waste time on something if I cannot do well in it despite countless hours of attempting to succeed. I do not think determination or drive is enough because it obviously is not for me. I am unable to tell if I am doing something wrong or if I do not have the mental capabilities do perform well. For those of you who have historically not done well in science, how were you able to perform better? Are there people that simply cannot grasp these concepts and it may be more worth my time to spend time elsewhere? If I can't understand fundamental physics concepts in high school I do not think I should even be thinking about pursuing it in college.
