Hi, I am an engineering student taking mechanics, and even though I feel like I understand the material, I still do badly on the tests. In fact, I was really excited about the midterm I just took, but I just found out that I got a 55 % on the multiple choice-I have yet to get above a 70% on a physics test. What is frustrating is that I started studying a week before, and I have a strong calculus background; I have finished the calc sequence and have never gotten lower than an 88% on a calc test. It is possible that I have a lot of test anxiety, because my heart is always pounding out of my chest when I take these tests. But still...I can't believe I am doing this badly in university calc-based physics! Can anyone relate? Is engineering just not for me? Should I retake mechanics? It's the end of the quarter now, and I know I won't get above a 3.2 in this course.
