Failing is Never an Option: Pass College in 10 Steps

By Russell Deasley @Worlds_Top_10

College is tough and at some point along the way, you're going to fumble. Sometimes it's hard to keep up with all the coursework, but other times we procrastinate and it finally catches up with us. It's okay - we all experience it. The true value is in realizing before it's too late to do anything about it.

Here are 10 steps to follow to pass your college courses.

1 - Assess the Situation

It's okay to panic if you realize you might fail a class. However, before you decide to drop the class, first assess the situation. Usually, there is something you can do to help yourself get out of this hole. If you have assignments left, you may actually be able to pick up some extra marks by studying hard.

2 - Talk to your Professor

Your professor isn't a big, scary unapproachable monster. Actually, professors tend to be super helpful when you need something. A lot of students don't realize that professors hold the power to allow you to pick up extra credit or extend a deadline if you have a legitimate reason for failing.

3 - Talk to your Adviser

In the rare circumstance where your professor can't help you, speak to your academic adviser. They'll be able to discuss the options with you. For instance, you may not want to drop a class because you are outside the deadline for changing and you'll have to pay a ton of money or suffer the bad grade. Your adviser is in the best position to help you through this.

4 - Consider all of your Options

It's time to evaluate all of the options available to you. Your professor and advisor would have given you some solid advice, so at this stage, it is best to consider where you are in your academic career and what you need in order to graduate. For instance, if you're early in your academic career you can drop the class and retake it at a later date.

5 - Think about your other Course Structure

Another important consideration is the effect of dropping your class will have on your course progression plan. Your overall course is structured in a way so that you can complete your course in three or four years. However, if you drop this class, you might be inadvertently adding another semester of your studies. Is this what you want to do?

6 - Commit to your Class if you Decide to Stick it out

If you decide to stick out your failing the course because your professor has provided you with an opportunity to claim some credit, then you need to commit! By being given a second chance, you can now show your professor that you can put the effort in and take full advantage of the opportunity you've been given.

7 - Learn from your Mistakes

If you decide not to stick out your course and drop it instead, then use it as a lesson to inform your future behaviour. There's nothing worse than making the same mistake over and over again, so if you drop your course, make sure you promise yourself never to let yourself get into this position again. Not only does it cost so much money, but it wastes time too.

8 - Use your Initiative

You've been through the experience of almost failing, so now it's time to take some initiative so that it never happens again. You should work towards the goal of finishing college, and to do that, seek the wisdom of your adviser. Have regular check-ins with them, so that they can help you assess your progress and make the best decisions for your course planning.

9 - Don't let Failure Stop you

I mentioned before that we all suffer failures at some point in our lives, but the value of this lesson is not to let it stop you. You need to pick yourself back up and carry on, otherwise, you'll find yourself falling into the same routine over and over. By being self-aware, you can put your mistakes behind you.

10 - Don't be Afraid to Ask for Help

Sometimes we just need a little help to push us over the finish line, and that's okay. If you need to take advantage of some extra help, you can utilize a paper writing service for college. This means that you won't miss any deadlines and can truly make the difference between a pass and a fail!

If you feel that you might be failing a college class, don't panic! There are options out there that will help you figure out where you went wrong and how to go about fixing it so that you can pass your class. By following these 10 steps, you'll be able to move past this low point and lead a successful life.
