When I decided to drop my stats class last semester, I was really worried about whether or not I was making the right decisions. I had a 60... I was passing. But for me, 6 is not an acceptable mark. I agonized over whether or not to drop the class before I had a mark recorded and re-take it. Eventually, I made the final decision and pulled myself out, but not without reservations.
It's for this reason that I know that I made the right decision. Now there's not so much pressure going into the second half of the course and I'll be much better prepared when I have to take Stats II within the next few semesters. Honestly, I couldn't be happier that I made the decision I did. I took a step back, took a few deep breaths and started again with a different approach, and boy was it worth it. I still have a struggle to get through the last test, assignment and final exam, but atleast this time my mark at the mid-term won't be working against me.
