Today, I had a test in Foundations and failed again for the second time. I got a 70% on this test and a 72% on the last one. I just don't get this. I am passing all my other classes, in fact, most people are having trouble in Patho and I'm passing that class with flying colors. I stayed up until 4:30 this morning studying and I spent all w/e studying for atleast 4 hours a day. In Patho, I had the application down, but in Foundations, for some reason, my critical thinking skills are not up to par. I understand the material, but if given the choice between the right and wrong answers, I always pick the wrong answer. I'm on scholarship
and I have a son depending on me to succeed. For the next test, I must get at least an 86% to maintain the 75% average and then I must get at least a 94% on our skills validation in order to get a B in the class. And I must get at least a B in the class to maintain my scholarship. I've already passed my drug cal test. I just don't feel confident. I have to go into a test feeling confident and it makes me on edge to know that I "have" to get a certain grade in order to pass. It's the the pressure that is eating me alive. I've got my family, friends, and co-workers all depending on me. I KNOW I can do this. I've passed Assessment with a B. I feel like I really want to give up and go back to the corporate world. Any suggestions?
