    I'm normally really good at this subject, and my teacher has really high expectations of me. However, I did terribly in my last test, and now my favourite teacher is disappointed in me. He thinks I'm not taking the subject seriously, but that's not it. I was genuinely just having an 'off' day.

    I'm scared of going into my next lesson with him, because I'm worried he doesn't think highly of me anymore, and that I might fail again.

    What should I do?

    Awwww, maybe just let him know that you were honestly just having an off day and you're still as committed as ever

    Don't be scared, bless. Don't worry about your teacher too much, he'll have forgotten and gotten over it by next class. This is your education so don't beat yourself up about it

    Is this a very young kid or a troll?
    Are you serious? Just because I'm upset about my grades that makes me either a young kid or a troll? I am neither.

    OP, I have been in your shoes before. Honestly just laugh it off. We all have bad days and your teacher is probably concerned about you. You might have mistook what they meant. Your teacher just regards you as a high achieving student and was surprised for that one test. Dw, you will do better. Were all human right? No one is perfect.

    Prove your teacher wrong. Next time you get a good score he will know that you are serious.

    Don't get stressed about it. If you want tell your teacher about how you felt as well.

    Your teacher was once in school too, and probably failed a fair few tests himself.
    He'll understand, just revise well and do better in the next one!
