I am a junior and have just started the IB program at my school (it's been a month of school). I've been trying my best in chemistry but I have C, my teacher is amazing (no complaints there) I just don't understand the material. I know that it's only been a month and that I still have a chance to bring it up but I feel like the first test was indicative of my final grade (as it was one of the easiest tests I'll be taking these next two years).
I have A's in the rest of my classes and am confident that I can maintain them. If I stay in IB, will the C in my transcript ruin my chances of going to "good colleges" (ie UCLA, UC Berkeley, UCSD etc)?
I'm considering dropping chem but dropping chem would mine dropping IB and I honestly don't think I have it in me to quit.
What should I do?
