I am currently sitting my first year exams at university. My first exam was yesterday and it was the worst exam I've ever done in my life. I worked so hard for this for months and it's the most awful feeling to open the paper and not be able to answer hardly any of it. There was one section which was purely problem solving and I did not understand it at all. I probably got 0 for that section and I feel stupid because other people said they found it ok. It's making me feel really down and this morning I woke up feeling sick. It makes me feel like I shouldn't be doing this course and I wonder how I'm going to manage if I am struggling already in first year. I love the course and still want to continue but I am worried if I will cope. I have never failed an exam in my life before now. Last semester I got 2 B's and a C but this semester I have struggled more and it's just going to keep getting harder. All my friends got A's last semester. It has made me feel really unmotivated for my other exams. It will show up my transcript so all of my employers will see it and it will affect my chances if I want to apply for further study. Plus, it costs so much money to have to resit an exam and I will have to study all summer for the resit when I have worked so hard this year and was looking forward to not having to worry about exams and studying. Can anyone give any advice or cheer me up? Thanks.
It's just one exam and you can resit in summer. Don't worry too much about it. What is done is done.
