So... I've recently started loosing faith in myself when it comes to Chemistry... My notes have always been high, and now the worst notes I get are in math and chemistry... No matter how hard I study for them I end up failing the test! I don't know what to do anymore ( in math the fault is on the teacher, coz she literally doesn't explain anything, and when she does, she gives it soooo quickly as if we already know it, now there's a new teacher that explains EVERYTHING SO GOOD, so it won't be a problem FOR NOW... The old teacher is coming back... :'( " anyways... I'm not being able to believe in myself again coz I failed so many times in it... So, have you guys been
in this situation before? And if so, how did u manage to get through it?
my boyfriend gave me a " tip" but it isn't working :(I'm really exhausted of this :(

"No matter how hard I study for them I end up failing the test!"
- Have you sat down with a tutor or the teacher as far as where you're getting stuck and concepts that are taking more time? If i were you, i would allocate time to studying, then reviewing with the teacher if she/he feels you have all the concepts that will be on the test.
"in math the fault is on the teacher, coz she literally doesn't explain anything, and when she does"
- I'd stay away from blaming the teacher, each teacher's method may or may not appeal or resonate with you but might work for others. This won't only happen in education but in life which is why you're learning these skills today. You're going to have team leaders, managers and bosses that aren't always going to communicate information the way you'd like. Which is why you are going to have to learn to problem solve this problem here.
Advice: Firstly, it's okay to fail. I applaud your efforts as i am sure you excel in other areas and this is a weaker subject for you given the circumstances. I had a hard time with Financial accounting and the best thing that happened to me was admitting i had a hard time and looking for help.
What you can do on your own might take 8 hours where with a tutor.. might take 4 hours.

ok sweety listen :)
failure sucks and can really hurt your ego, especially if you were really killing it before. like you never thought you d fail in anthng and then Bam.
I had a similar experience when I entered university to study architecture...
I was really good in school and all but architecture has a different approach, and you need to have artistic skills which I lacked at that time. so it really put me behind and crushed my self esteem. Moreover I didn t get along with the coordinator and we always argued about my projects, (even after I got better). That was really depressing and stressful because no matter what I did or presented he always crushed it completely for like 2 years. and even if the other instructors liked me and the ideas I did, when he starts talking they follow him...
so it really brought me down, and crushed my self esteem for like 2 years until my parents forced me to change university and now I am doing great here.
in brief, what kept me going was mainly my ego I didn t accept failure and I would have stayed in the former university if my parents didn t push me.
other support was my parents, they really helped me through this.
my dad is civil so tried helping me in my projects.
other support is my friends, my friends in univ always had my back.
so ask your friends for help in some courses, get a tutor if your friends aren t enough and try to keep yourself motivated by never accepting failure.
like you don t lack anthng to no be doing it right.0
