So I'm in the process of taking AP1, and Micro. I was doing really really well, until the last exam. Now, there's five weeks left, and I'm beginning to realize something. I don't think I'm capable of being able to get A's. I study ridiculous amounts, far more than what my peers do(at least with how much they say they study), yet I'm not doing well. Since my other grades weren't so great, all I can get in AP 1, 2, and Micro are at lowest A-'s.
I'm overwhelmed, tired, and losing faith. I don't think I'm cut out to do this. What seems to happen is I'll have everything down, and once the exam comes around(or practical, or quiz) it all just goes blank, and I can't remember any of it.. For many, it seems like they come by A's so easily, and yet, I just can't seem to figure it out..
Speaking as a 20+ year RN here...A/P plus Micro is a full load, and them some.
Cut yourself some slack.
If it makes you feel better, I'm currently retaking Micro "for fun and refresher," and to help with future grad school work. And... it's a lot of work. What was I thinking?
P.S., also keep in mind that different instructors are more (or less) "difficult" that others: The same "A" in Professor Humpty's Micro class, might be a "C" in Professor Dumpty's Micro class.
