I'm about to be kicked out of my undergraduate program, hvnt found a easy way to deal

  1. Sep 19, 2011 #1
    First of all, I'm asking here for advice since i've seen how the members of this forum answer in a mature manner (I've read some problems like mine in the forum, however, Ive not contributed some). your advice is very much appreciated (please dont mind the different field of study)


    I've been taking this subject (Chemical Reaction Engineering) in my program (BS Biotech and Chemistry) and I have failed consistently for the past 3 terms (half of a semester). I'm on academic probation for my fourth take of the course. Final examinations are scheduled on the 21st and Its har to accept that I'm a failure.

    It's quite unfair for me, the university has a very stupid course curriculum, and (my first take of the course) was the very first time that I've encountered advanced chemical engineering, and engineering mathematics.

    During my second take of the course I've managed to get good grades (not the best but above average), however, the chemical engg department had implemented a directive wherein the Academic Vice president of the University will be the one to make the final exams for our class since CRE is a critical subject for chemical engineering students.

    For two terms I feel cheated and just outright failed on the course (because of the final exams), and now I would be KICKED OUT of my Program because of a SUBJECT THAT DOES NOT INVOLVE BIOTECH and CHEMISTRY. I have 23 UNITS left, and I'm about to finish my undergraduate thesis, however this just ruins every dream I've had.

    I'm not a chemical engineering student to experience their strict implementation. I'm very depressed, and I've no one to talk about this, one peer of mine, after doing 5 years of chemical engineering transferred to Industrial Engineering just because of this CHEMICAL REACTION ENGINEERING course.

    I have a good running average for the past 4.5 years, I've consistently managed to have an A- or a B+. A- turned to B+ when I've taken CRE (A- = 3.30 i think).

    Being kicked out, I cant even think how much time and money I've wasted for this degree. I still believe that I did not deserve to be included in a class of chemical engg students that are being screened because of their performance on the board exams.

    How would you deal with this if you are in my situation? I'm still looking for solutions before my life is ruined by this course.

    Can you transfer to a school that doesn't have that require class and complete your degree there?

    Have you discussed this problem with your adviser or your department chairperson?

    What advice do they offer?

    This is a must. See what can be done and explain your situation (if you haven't already).
