I am very worried about getting rescinded. I was accepted and plan on going to Colorado School of Mines. My grades are all good except for AP Physics C, which I am failing. My first semester grades were fine. My schedule is very rigorous. Here are my second semester grades so far:
AP Computer Science- 5
Multivariable Calculus Honors (dual enrollment with University of Illinois)- 5
AP English Lit- My teacher hasn't put any grades in (he is very disorganized and he procrastinates) but I'm sure I'm doing fine
Engineering Graphics - 5
AP Physics- 1
I honesty have no good explanation for why I am going so poorly in that class. It's not that I have senioritis but I here are the reasons I could come up with
1) I am terrible at Physics
2) My mental health is suffering (I haven't seen a doctor but I should because I think I am suffering from anxiety and depression. Much to do with this class. I stress about it every day).
3) My teacher sucks. I know this is on me and I shouldn't blame anyone or anything else, but spare me as I go on a quick rant. I honestly haven't had such a bad teacher in all of my high school existence. The lectures are terrible (he is a complete narcissist and he teaches like he is trying to prove how smart he is rather than actually make us understand the material. And for the record, he is the most naturally dumb teacher I've ever had. All he can do is memorize formulas. Once he forgot the integral of 2x.)The notes are disorganized. He gives us worksheets and never gives us keys to check our work. He gives us webassigns that have nothing to do with the test. Right after we finish the lecture notes, instead of him giving us good in class practice, he calls us up randomly to present AP free response problems in front of the entire class and gives us a grade on it. It's not helpful because he should be teaching us, not other kids in the class that are just as clueless as me. We just learned the material.
4) Low effort. At least on the surface it is low effort but not in reality. I literally have notebooks filled with practice problems and outside notes because his are unusable but I always seem to study the wrong thing for the test. I get extremely demotivated when I try to do any work for this class which has resulted in my performance jusr going more and more downhill. I am trying to bring it up but there's only one test left in the year so I don't think I can. But I am still willing to do everything and anything to bring my grade up.
Anyway. I am very worried I don't know what I would do if I got rescinded. I am also so ashamed because I've never even gotten a c before. This grade does not reflect who I am whatsoever. Has anyone ever been in a similar situation- doing well in all classes but failing 1? Should I be worried about being rescinded? I know most will say I should email the admissions and ask. What should I say?
Also- It's worth noting that I got a merit scholarship. Should I be worried about losing it?
Another note- I am majoring in computer science.
