    You would need a 95.8 (basically a 96%) on your final. Here is how you can learn to calculate this:

    You can do the basic math just as well as we can to figure out what you need on the final. I suggest you meet with your instructor to see what they advise you to do to help improve your studying techniques. It IS possible but you can not keep using the methods that you have been using.

    It is possible, I was in a very similar situation in nursing school and ended up with the highest grade in the class on the final with a near perfect score. I studied my ass off and it paid off, you just have to apply yourself

    I can't stop crying right now. I kept making the most simple mistakes again. I dont want to remediate it. It will set me back a year

    And if you do nothing and fail, how much will that set you back? Emilyemily, whatever you're doing isn't working for you. You've had a lot of good advice in this and other fora, and it's up to you. There are people at school who will tutor you, diagnose any learning disability you have, help you understand where your misconceptions lie, drill you on med arithmetic, whatever you need. But this is college. Unlike high school, the student has to make the first move. The faculty will not have your parents coming after them if you do poorly. YOU have to get help. Ask your faculty what they recommend, and DO IT.

    My daughter the professor (not of nursing) had this haiku up on her office door:

    Office hours.
    Once again, no one comes in.
    Perhaps they'll all fail.

    Do not be that student. If you are not ready to put the extra time into it that nursing school requires of you, take a year or two off. There is no shame in that. Many of us have done that and come back refreshed and prepared to give it a better go. Your call, though.
