Really long question bc I called UCR and was transferred over and over but the ones who I should talk to are unavailable. So yeah I'm here.
I've been placed in "ARC 35" for math and "ENGL004D or L discussion" for English. Turns out I didn't pass either placement exams! I'm so confused and disappointed. I'm afraid I've already failed or fallen behind before college has even started.
For those of you who are in the same predicament I am—I hope I'm not the only one :(— Is the $40 ALEKS preparation objectives (in order to retake the MAE) sort of an alternative to the $280 Intermediate Algebra Workshop, as long as I complete all the modules and pass the MAE the 2nd time around? Can ALEKS be completed earlier than 6 weeks? And does anyone know if the online version of the Intermediate Algebra Workshop is interactive with live videos of the professor teaching math on campus or honestly just someone there to help with any math questions?
Also, I'm afraid of not knowing which classes to choose at Orientation July 20-21 (CNAS) since doing ALEKS for 6 weeks from today will mean completion in August. And because I'll be busy doing online classes to fulfill the math requirement, I can't attend Highlander Early Start Academy to fulfill the English/Writing requirement before college starts. So how hard is it to catch up to regular English classes and other UCR freshmen if I enroll in English 4 for fall quarter? Yeah, my college experience already looks bad
