Just failed my first midterm exam for one of my major finance classes...like really bad

I got an 18 out of 100, I felt so depressed.....I am not sure is it my study method since I can't seem to relate each financial terms to different forms of the Gordon Model. The finance terms just don't sink into my head for some reason. So when I look at the questions, I am basically blanked. I don't know what I should do know, if I withdraw, I have to take next semester, but I need this class to take others next quarter so I have to stay another quarter just for one class. Or I switch, but it feels like an overkill since I am not sure that I don't have the talent or I didn't study right.

    How bad is it for you? Do you still have a shot at passing the class? If so, I would recommend trying to see the professor. Not to argue for grade points back or anything like that, but maybe to get some pointers or advice on how to proceed in terms of mastering the course material. It's very possible that you might have approached the material wrong to begin with and just not realized until the test. If that's the case, if you can correct course now it might help you for future exams and future classes for that matter.

    Apart from withdrawing, what are your other options? Is there anything you would be happy switching to?
