Its been 2 months since classes started and things have been going okay. Not being modest but, i've been told by some that because i was going into Junior college after HS that i should take no more than 12 units or 3 classes, i ignored those people cause i felf confident and i registered for 15 units, intro bio, intro chem, english 1a, rock history(hate this class, like classic rock but not literally 40's-60's classic).
Anyways, the transition of coming from HS with a 2.4 gpa into college all motivated has been a rather noticeable one. In HS, i never or rarely studied for tests and never completed a whole book. Now in college i'm studying like never before, not complaining BTW, am reading more pages in a week in college than in a year in HS, Literally!
With that being said, we've had three tests already in chemisty, got an A- on the first which made me happy, got a disturbing wake up call by a 69% d+ on the 2nd test, had the third yesterday, expecting a high B or low A.
Now in bio, i came in the first test all confident like i was gonna get an A, broke my heart when the scantron said 78%. Now i got another coming next week.
Now one fact i don't like is that in those first few tests i've taken, i should've gotten a beter grade, A- should've really been an A+, that D+ an A (this one sucks. Teacher stresses all week that she's gonna give us one type of particular problem .redox btw. for the exam, exam day comes and whats with all these other types of problems i didn't care to study for), that 78 in bio should've been a B+. I felt the grades didn't reflect my knowledge on the material, almost all the problems i get wrong are the ones i misread, i forget the units or write the wrong ones, you know what i mean, those stupid mistakes. I hate that.
My point is, what do you guys think about my situation? Is it that "1st sem in college" thing that's giving me a hard time? Is it the new system?
Will i be fine?
Does this kind of thing happen to everybody? I'm just worried because what if i don't do good in my prereqs and don't get accepted into a bsn program, and not get to fulfill my ultimate dream and goal of becoming a CRNA, or a NP
