We got our grades back yesterday and I failed the first block by 1%!!! The reason why I failed the first block is because I tanked the Mini 1 Part 1. I did horrible on the first exam and I think it was a combination of things that made me do so bad on the first exam. I could not find a right study schedule the right study habits the right study spot and I was home sick since it was the first time i was ever away from my family and to add to that there was some family issues of family members being sick. However, after the first exam I got into a groove and every exam after my first exam I have steadily improved. So do you think I have a chance of going in front of the promotions committee and seeing if I can present my case and if they will let me pass to second semester? has anyone been through the appeals process for anything and can give me some details. I emailed Dr. L already to see if I can appeal I am waiting to hear back but I want to know if any of you have any advice.
