In high school I was always quite a good student, I graduate with a 3.7ish GPA on a 4 point scale. However, I have never gotten straight As. I’ve come close a few times, usually with one class in which I am unable to receive an A for one reason or another.
By the end of high school, I hardly had any study skills whatsoever and unfortunately this wreaked havoc during college. After my first semester, my GPA was 0.9 and I only passed one of the three classes I was enrolled in. The second semester I figured a few things out and did get my GPA up to 1.6, but I still failed one class and due to my current academic probation status, I am one semester away from being dismissed. If my GPA isn’t above 2.0 by the end of this fall semester, that’s it for my chances at this school.
This summer, though, I am being reminded of my childhood/teenage dream of becoming an astronaut. It was always a major source of inspiration and made my life much better. It was what pushed me to get a 3.7 in high school. With every passing day I remember the attitude I held more and more vividly. Now I feel that I can do anything if it’s what it takes to venture to the stars. This absolutely includes sacrificing energy and leisure in the name of academic success.
If I get straight As in the fall, my GPA will be above 2.5. If the trend continues through the spring, I’ll be slightly above 3.0, very exceptional in a challenging program like the one in which I’m enrolled (Physics). 2 months ago
I haven’t looked at HAC very recently, but it wasn’t as bad as I had feared. I can definitely do this. 9 months ago
Too afraid to look at HAC, but I’m assuming that I do not have straight A’s. 9 months ago
I’m making this my primary goal for the upcoming semester. I’m only taking 12 credit hours, so there’s really no reason why this can’t happen for me. Hopefully I won’t get sidetracked with work, practicing, etc, but I’d really like to have a perfect GPA in my last semester as an undergrad 13 months ago
Got my results a couple of weeks ago, and got AAB, which was enough to get into university (yay)
Done =] 2 years ago
Results come out tomorrow! And I’m nervous. I’ve already had a nightmare that I got BCC. I really hope I got AAB or at least ABB. It’s the B in physics I’m worried about, I think I may have cocked it up and got a C, when I need a B to get into university. Aah, I’m so nervous! 2 years ago
So revision time has come around again and I find myself on the computer wasting the day away. Oops. To get to uni this year I need AAB, and I’m on track for that. Teachers say it may even be possible to get AAA, but I doubt I’m going to do that. An A in physics? Haha, that would be a miracle. Still, I would like to try for it…
My first exam is on the 17th May – it’s a physics retake exam which I got a B in the first time round. A low B though, so I’m retaking it. After that the exams are more serious, not so many retakes, and I need to nail these ones first time round. Wish me luck, results come out in August, and then I’ll find out if I get to uni this year. I can’t wait. 2 years ago
Straight B’s or better: do-able; straight A’s: not too certain. The fact that I will be missing an entire week of school two weeks from now does not settle my worries. I should plot this one out:
- AP Stat: I need to read up on a few chapters, since my brain, for some reason, did not take in the info from the beginning of this semester. It feels like I have missed so much.
- Pol Sys: Easy.
- German III: Easier than Political Systems.
- Brit Lit: Making a B will be easy. For making an A, I just need to do the work. Minimal effort. :)
- AP Env Sci: The work is easy. The info seems easy. However, I have not even received a test back in this class with a B. Needless to say, it has been a real stress-inducer year-round. O, Environmental Science, how you have deceived me so.
- Psych: Minimal effort = A. 2 years ago
It is still hard to believe how one class brought down the grades of all my other classes. Last semester, I had straight A’s, excluding one class: AP Environmental Science. What hurt the most was that trying to bring up that one grade to an A caused the rest of my grades to drop down to B’s… all of this effort, only to come out of first-semester APES with a low C. I’ve changed up my study plans, hoping I can end high school running. 2 years ago
Hopefully more then once. 2 years ago
