Well -- not good. Hear me out: Studying physics in Canada, in my second year, almost finished the semester, and my marks are ****. I've hovered around class average (a range from D to C+) in most of my classes since year one and I don't feel like I can improve - rather it seems like the subjects are becoming more and more difficult and my marks are progressively getting lower and lower as a result. So the thing they (people) told me about school getting easier after first year turned out to be horse manure in my case, unfortunately. I was hoping to have a high enough mark by the end of school so as to at least keep the option of a master's degree open. I'm losing motivation to study, and fast, since it seems like no matter how much I study, I get rewarded with C's or D's on tests. That's basically it. Thanks for reading my little story. Ideas? Advice?
