I have been looking now for almost 1 year for my specific problem I am dealing in School right now. To make things clear I am a graduate student in High school and in a month or so I will be graduating High School. My major interests is Physics specifically Radio-Astronomy. However I dough my skills day by day is falling.Let me explain why: In my previous years ( from elementary school until the first year of high school ) I never payed and special attention to my mathematics and physics classes and actually I really hated maths( and also failed math 3 times ). However for some reasons , after my second year in High school I had a huge passion for science. After giving more attention to school I realised that I was dealing a serious problems facing my tests and all the exercises ( homework etc) . You see when I face a problem in Math or physics ( before I do solve any problems ) I read the theory and the book examples and It seems that I understand it fair enough. When it comes for using the theory I really cant solve it , I screw up everything. Even when I get up to solve a problem in class , I am a graduate student and still get nervous and anxious that I wont be able to solve the problem. Note that my teachers have told my parents that I am a really good student however get really anxious and screw up in tests (** And also I really know some basic Algeura and Caculus ). Also my marks are fairly pretty good I would say B+ but I struggle so much with the problems and tests. I think I fail to improve in these subjects because : a) I think that I never had the experience of practicing problems and solving them.And generally in the aura of studying. b) Perhaps the way I study is not that effective? Truth to be told I give special attention to the theory and not so much on practicing however as I said when I come face to face with a problem I freeze and dont know what to do ( sometimes I think that perhaps I dont have the mathematical skills to solve this problem ) and after seeing the answer everything is so obvious to me. So I really cant see the obvious? c) I find that I dough my self a lot of times. Even out of school for other things sometimes I dough my self and really don't have that strong charecter that will stand up for hes own rights. d) Or I really suck in the science classes. I would truly appreciate any reply for those who have similar experience , or could suggest me something that I could do improving my self in general. I am still giving my final exams so any useful tips would be great. But also I have a whole summer ahead of me that I could apply my self into physics and math before I attend to a College. P.S Forgive me for not being so detailed but my time is quite limited. Thanks , -Andy.
