I'm not sure if I'm in the correct section with this request but I'm running out of time so I'll just throw it out there. I attend Valencia College and in order to pass I need a 78 overall on my exams, which is the basically the only thing that you get graded on. I currently only have a 72 in the class😔 and there is only a Hesi exam worth 99 points, a dosage final worth 10 points and the final worth 165 points. I would need to score a 90 or better on the Hesi and a minimum of 154 on the final to pass. Not sure wether I should stay and chance it or withdraw (deadline is this friday). My professor thinks it's possible but if I stay and I fail my GPA would take a big hit. I just want some advice or even what someone else would do in my situation. Thank you.

It's hard to save yourself at the final and most people score within a few points of their average. If you have never made an A and you need an A,,that will be very very hard. I would see about dropping and getting back in. If you do come back, you better have a new plan to put more time into studying. Study your old notes while you wait to get back in. You would be surprised at how many students are repeats and from some other major as well. It's hard to find a good job and nursing is in demand and you can actually get a job right out of school, so stay in the game. So what if it took an extra year to graduate.
