I started college in September and I am taking Chemistry, Maths, Biology and Ancient History. We a test in each subject and I did well on my Chemistry and Ancient History tests however i am really upset with my maths. I got 76/100 which is a D. Everyone else in my class is super smart and got As and Bs. I always feel like I shouldn't be in the smart class because I'm not very confident with maths and it isn't something that comes naturally to me.
I'm not sure what to do? I feel like if I moved down a class then it would mean that I'm really stupid. Any help would be appreciated!

Remind yourself that it's not the real exam and that there is time to improve. With Maths in particular, it can be quite devastating to see other people (visibly) coping, but you never know, they might be putting in the hard work at home. You just need to practice, especially on your areas that need imrpovement but every area, and you can honestly recover from this.

As long as you do that, after a few days you will get past it.
