Anonymous asked: Hi, I'm a student and well Im doing my GCSEs and would like to do science for A Levels. I really love science, it's my passion, but Im scared that I won't be able to do it bc I got a c for my last assessment n I feel hopeless n tht Im not a natural so I shouldn't take it BUT I REALLY DO WANT TO. I revised ALOT, thought I understood it all but still got a bad grade. I can't stop crying abt it n was just wondering, if theres any tips that you could give me bc I really need someones help, thank you
If you really love sciences, you should not put you off with (eventual) bad grades… believe me, most of us have been there before or after. In the end the effort is worth it, and you’re too young to be discouraged. I remember a quote from Ernest Rutherford that may encourage you to keep fighting:
All of physics is either impossible or trivial. It is impossible until you understand it and then it becomes trivial.
I failed my first 6 computer science exams and cried over them, too. I don’t think I’m a “natural” at it either, but it’s my passion, so there’s no way I’m going to give it up so other people can do it instead of me.
The good news is that I got a B- in my last computer science class, so all that effort is paying off!
