So I am majorly failing a class (I'm talking I got a 31 on the last test). I foresaw difficulties in this class since it's a preparation for the actuarial exams, so I changed my registration to pass/fail early on. Theoretically, I could still pass, if I get a B or higher on the final, but I haven't been to class in well, forever, and the material is obviously difficult. My friends that have taken the class have chastised me for taking this class since it is so hard.|
Since the class is pass/fail, I will get an F on my gpa. I have a pretty stellar gpa atm, so it would only lower me to a 3.5. I am graduating in the spring; this class is not required for my degree, I just needed an extra class for financial aid. I therefore cannot drop the class, it's too late in the semester, plus I would lose all my money.
So what should I do? Stop trying in this class completely and just take the F? Bust my ass to study ridiculous material and still possibly (probably) get the F? Some other option? I still have 3 other (important) classes to study & do work for, so it's not like I would be totally dropping everything.
Have you ever been in a similar situation? Please tell me all about it.
