Hey!So, I applied to some universities for Physics and astronomy before I ended up with my grade 12, first-semester mid-term mark of a 74 in physics. I had an 87 last year with the same teacher. I've been accepted everywhere I applied, which is great, but I'm scared that, because I'm not doing well now, I won't do well in university. At the same time, I don't want to give up on it either. I know if I put in the work (I'd want to put in the work because I like it) I probably can succeed. I know there's always the option of going into something else and then pursuing physics on the side but what are the chances that I'll even have time later in life to do that? They're pretty slim.Maybe a minor would work but it depends on if my parents will be okay with me doing that. I really don't want to make excuses for my performance in physics but I've had a pretty heavy semester with English, Physics, Advanced Functions and Philosophy. Most of my concentration went into English because we have like 3 assignments due for English every week. So I haven't really been concentrating on physics or advanced functions for that matter. Philosophy isn't too bad. I also almost lost my dad twice in the duration of this semester and then my house got robbed (lol my life is great). There's also the fact that I'm in 6 different extra- curriculars - I don't know how I'm surviving, but I am. I had 2 and a half weeks of physics homework pending before the winter holidays, which I sat down for 7 hours yesterday and completed.What I noticed is that the homework came naturally to me, I understood everything- didn't even have to refer to my notes because everything made sense. My physics teacher gives us questions from the homework - similar ones- but with different numbers and I mess up. I don't know if it has to do with my confidence issues and always second guessing myself but I do horribly when I know I can do much better and this is what I'm afraid is going to carry on into university. I'm scared that even if I end up with my degree, I won't have a high enough GPA to get into teaching. Is loving something a good enough reason to pursue it? I've gotten into life sciences at a university too, just in case I chicken out from what I want to do but I really don't like life science. I can do well in bio and chemistry but it's just not the same. What sucks even more, is that I've made it into one of the best North American universities for engineering, physics, and mathematics (for their physics and astronomy program), but I don't feel worthy of it looking at how poorly I'm doing right now. I'm so stuck.
