Is it too bad if I fail a class?

  1. Jun 27, 2011 #1
    I'm about to fail a class, because the exam is in 4 days and I haven't studied anything about it the whole semester. I really don't feel like studying 12 hours a day until the exam to then get a low grade just to pass this class. Is it too bad if I do it next year? Does anybody care about that when hiring people?

    With that defeatist attitude you wont get anywhere, the best is probably to give it your all, if you get a low grade then do it later etc.

    I agree that your attitude could use some introspection. Why did you not study for the whole semester, and if you retake the class, what would you do to prevent this from happening again? Also, is it realistically possible for you to get a B or a C in the class at this point? (Note: "realistically" here means "short of doing near-perfectly on the exam," not "without working for it".)

    4 days is a long time if you play your cards right, now get off the forum and go play your cards (right)
