I am an undergrad with a husband and 4 kids. I work, tutor, work in a lab... all on top of my classes. I do really well on homework (and I really enjoy sitting and deriving with my white board) and I do well on our weekly quizzes. I stay above the average mark on everything... except exams; I test far below average on midterms and finals. This term is Thermo and stat mech. I’ll be lucky to get a C in this class, which is so disheartening. It’s also stressful since I am in school for my family, not just myself. Does anybody have any career/academic advice? I would like to pursue a master’s, but even continuing in school seems pointless when I do poorly on exams. Also, knowing the difference in grading between grad and undergrad makes this whole venture so daunting. I don’t want to quit. Any real world professional/academic advice that any of you may have would be greatly appreciated.
