Good desicion to not do well/try in a subject? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Ok, i am at this point in year 11 where i want to focus on my subjects more, at least more than previous in gcse. so i deciding either to try my best in SPANISH, ok to cut long story short, did not study in year 8 and 9, and this was my fallback subjects and this subject which i had to do, i hopped along the year 10 and in mocks which i got i got a D, well this doesn't fit right on my mock results, which was mostly a's not sounding arrogant any sort, but now i don't want d and thinking of bringing it higher,my head says to try for a C because if i aim for higher it might effect my other subjects but my heart realizes i could do better than this and go for a B. SPANISH is one of those subjects which takes a lot of effort for me.

    Have you ever had this situation, even if you were reading this as a mature students, have you ever had this problem in life, deciding if you are doubt of succeeding or not bothered?

    what shall i do?

      I would learn English before you attempt a different language.
