I did once. I got grounded despite being a university freshman. Tell me about the time you failed in class.

I've failed in the class of life - innumerable times. When the adolescent passion took over the sensible me. When I lost friends for no good reason. When life offered me the best of people and then took them away. When I won a race and lost a friend. I envy you. You are lucky to fail in a classroom of a university. Stay aware. Stay confident. Let the light shine within. It may not be visible but it is the ultimate string. Best regards, Medha.

I usually did too but I was horrible in math. I wasn't prepared for college math, lol. What was your worst subject? Or the one you dreaded most?

@azzyrica biology in school time. Maths was always my favourite.

@sjvg1976 In Delhi, did you guys dissect animals for biology? If so, I can see why you hate it.

@magnumopus It's harder than it sounds. Mixing resting and studying is tricky.

Nothing worse than the tension of will I pass or will I fail? I was so close to getting a C. That D was like a big F in my college math class.

@jstory07 Exactly, had to spend $$$ on it. One good thing is that it prepared me to take college seriously. Did you take any measures in making sure you passed that near failure?

I've never failed a class. I have made Cs before but my parents are the kimd of patents that freak out if you get Cs. They just don't like the Ds & Fs. I'll be a senior in college this august & i have only made 3 Cs my entire time there and they were all math classes which i suck at & aren't major requirements for my major so i was just trying to get through them.

@azzyrica I am a science/mind kind of person. I am a double major in biology and psychology and I took my last math class this semester and I am so glad that I don't have to take another one. I know I can make As in all the classes that I have left and that will make my GPA look really good.

I almost failed in one academic subject since I'm not feeling well during exams but thank God I made it.

The almost fail is just as tense as the fail-fail.

I failed once in accounting that's why I retake this subject. The funny thing was that I miss it by one single point.
