Is a D or dropping a course better?
I’m an international baccalaureate student who is doing very poorly at math right now and I am going to most likely end the semester with a D. I was struggling with my last year but the teacher didn’t grade anything so my grade didn’t reflect that. This year the teacher has only put tests into the grade book and no matter how hard I have tried I cannot get my grade up. Would it be better for me to drop the class or keep it and probably do poorly next semester? A part of me believes that I should drop the class because I have been awarded full tuition scholarships from two schools that will probably be taken away if I continue to do poorly.1 replies
