I'm really curious about how people do this without screwing their social lifes. I am studying in a very challeging college currently so my grades are not even close to my expectations. I take 7 courses in this semester, 5 of them will probably A at the end but i failed in calculus and physics exams. My grade for first midterm in Calculus is 50 and in Physics its 70. (Even if they seem low still above average) Furthermore, final exam in calculus is replacing the lowest midterm grade so there is still hope. Do you have any advice? Should i just give up on 4.0 GPA? Am i not smart enough to do that or is it just that i don't know how to study?
