Thread: How do you cope with this?

    Angry How do you cope with this?

    Hi!
    How do you cope with it when you fail on the exam yet it wasn't your fault?
    I just had an exam today,I was supposed to build an amplifier using a BJT and show a proper output.
    The problem was I knew the circuit,I even made it with my own hands for other members(can't blame them not everyone is
    good at everything)of the group and yet my own circuit despite being properly set and correct didn't work and I was marked 26 out of 60!!!

    I made the circuit work on other members' boards but when it came to my board my circuit didn't work as expected.
    I suspected that there was some kind of internal short in my board which was causing the resistors to be shorted out.
    I informed the teacher but he thought that either I didn't know the proper circuit or I didn't know the proper method to set it
    and when he asked me to check the output,as usual it wasn't as expected. The other members protested that my circuit wasn't
    behaving properly but the teacher again thought they might be trying to help me out of my irresponsibility and warned them
    that they will get mark deduction.

    It seems that the teacher was a bit rude,but I can't blame him,it was the equipment fault in my opinion,I can't forgive myself
    for this and this is the worst mark I received in this semester and hence my GPA will go down. I can't just get this thought
    out of my head and the consequence is haunting me ever since I walked out of the exam. I am feeling so angry with myself,
    and yet I believe this anger might interfere with my other exams. The thought of getting 26 out of 60(and only 40 marks remaining for
    this unit) is really frightening,and I also believe that I earned a bad reputation as well,from now on the teacher will be thinking I am a real
    loser case. He used to like me a lot though,I am fast with the circuits when it comes to lab classes yet t'day I failed both myself and his
    belief. Damn I don't know what to do,I feel like giving up my studies and runaway somewhere and rot till my death.

    Anyone got any suggestions or advice for me?

    Thanks

    Even I have been under the exact same situation in my Physics lab once.
    But I don't give a damn about my result or marks. I know what I am and I'm happy with that.
    seeing is believing..

    Umm,if it was school,it would be fine with me,I could probably talk with the principal and arrange a re-exam but in the university,I must as always give a damn because one bad mark means either I'll have to live with a poor CGPA(hence zero chance of a proper job and respect) or I will have to spend a bag-load of money and valuable time to retake that course and get a improvement remark in my final certificate,so in either way I am basically screwed. I also am responsible for all my grades and answer to my parents directly and the aren't the most kind hearted or understanding type...so basically a philosophical or '3 IDIOTS' type idea won't suffice here,but I really appreciate your idea and understand what you are trying to say but its not that simple for me....
    Thanks!

    If you are a student of CSE, don't worry about CGPA, for a good job they will look for the qualification in you not your CGPA.
    Infact software farms don't wanna take higher cgpa students coz they don't stay long..
