    I want to go to university for Creative Writing, and I have been telling myself that I'll most likely get in to Uni, but then my English teacher told me my predicted grade is a D.

    But I don't understand her. I've been getting C's in her class, and my other English teacher gave me a B in my most recent exam. I know I'm doubting myself because of what she says, but I don't know what to do, because I haven't planned any other career paths. I don't feel mature and ready enough to go out and get a full-time job. I can't even get a part-time one yet.

    Is their any other directions I can go in my career for creative writing? Or should I believe in myself?

    Are you year 12 or 13?

    You can prove the teacher wrong by getting good grades and working hard. If you are year 13 you dont have time to doubt.

    Creative writing you either have the taken for or you do not imo.
    You can always resit if thats your definite aim.
