What Class Did You Have to Struggle for a C?

There are very few classes where I've had to struggle to get a C. Usually, if I get a C, it is because I did not study. I can get a C if I just pay attention in class and show up for the tests without even looking at notes (often without even taking notes). But for organic chemistry, I had to struggle for my C. I was making flash cards, reading the book, looking over my notes, working problems, looking at past exams the professor had given, and still it was a struggle. But I really feel like I learned a lot in this class at least. So what class made you struggle and still you only got a C?

I struggled in all of my math classes after Algebra I. It was a subject that I did not enjoy, so I did not put the effort in to study and pay attention in class. Now that I am not in school, it hasn't really affected my life at all. I mean, how many real life, everyday situations can you get into where knowledge of algebra or geometry is essential?

Aw, I like math. I actually use geometry every day at work and often trig as well. But I guess it all depends on where you work. Some people use organic chemistry daily and I hope I'll never have to use it again once I'm entirely done with it.

Wow, you must be an engineer or something! I'm glad that I haven't encountered any situations where algebra, geometry, or trig was necessary. *LoL*

Nope, I wish I could be an engineer for the money though! I like math, but not that much. ;) I just do simple calculations at a menial job all day long. Basically double checking other people who don't know how to do math.

For me it's Pysical Education, I'm not good at sports at all. I always got a C for PE exams when I was a student, from junior to senior ... until my graduation from college. There is only one B when I was in high school. What a pity!! I care about sports such as Football,Basketball,F1,snooker etc. only on TV. I don't like do exercise myself.

I can definitely understand that one. I hated PE as well and I'm not good at any sports. I might have been a bit better at sports if I didn't have such horrible vision. But I doubt I would have enjoyed any sports either way. I don't even like watching sports on TV generally. I like to exercise, but anything involving a ball I am going to end up getting hit.

Oh I know what you mean there! I hated physical education. Except, thankfully most of the schools I went to just gave out pass or fail grades in PE, rather than giving out letter grades. And unless you didn't show up, you would pass.

It was geometry. I never understood it and I was blessed, and I mean blessed with a c.And there was a science class that I got a c in too that was a blessing.

I know what you mean about C's being a blessing sometimes. This was my second time taking Ochem. But I was scared I would have to retake nutrition as well, but thankfully I was blessed with a C on that.

Oh,I have never gotten a C.I think all the classes I have studied are very easy.Chemistry?I like it very much but I needn't learn it now.I think you needn't struggle with it if you read the book carefully before the examnition.I think it can work and you can have a try.

I guess you haven't gotten far enough into your studies yet. ;) High school chemistry was a piece of cake for me and I loved it. General chemistry in college wasn't too bad either, except that it was so hard to add that I took it all years apart which required a lot of relearning. It was only when I got to organic chemistry that I really started to struggle with chemistry. The book is utterly useless in organic chemistry it seemed. It is much more important to memorize reagents and such and work through problems than it is to do reading. If you ever have to take it, maybe you'll get quite a shock.

That would be math. I suck in math and did ever since we went past divisionn. Up till then I did good but after that it was a major struggle. I was lucky to pull a D much less a C. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~
