Bad start to APUSH....take it or leave it?
Hi everyone, I am taking APUSH this year and unfortunately I've had a rough start. It's been about a week of school and we have taken a couple quizzes total which I scored about a 60%-70% on both. I overestimated my studying skills as the questions have been extremely specific, and I easily missed them on the quiz. The thing is, I don't want to drop the class and I want that as my last resort. But I don't want to stay if I'm going to end up in the C-D grade range by the end of the semester. The workload is definitely heavy and I feel like I have what it takes to do better, but I still have this sense of doubt since I know it will be difficult. Any opinions on what I should do? I'm trying to raise my grade up to at least a B and we only have a week left to change our schedules.7 replies
