QUESTION: Hey everyone...

Im so stressed out... I haven't done well at all this term because of external factors... family problems, outside pressures and just other things bothering me in my life which made it hard for me to study or do work.. :(

I will most likely fail all of my 5 courses this term.. its a 1b term.. and im still struggling to adjust to university life...

Does anyone know what could happen if I do fail 1b... all 5 courses..

Please and thanks :(

  1. Talk to your academic advisor as soon as you can, they may be able to help your situation.
    Be completely honest with your advisor as well, this isn't a time to be prideful. They can't help if they don't understand the situation completely.

    1. ^ This. Plus probably put in a petition explaining our situation. Hopefully something can be worked out.

    2. 1 is right. A friend of mine in Physics encountered the same situation and managed to make a fresh start. But the sooner you get started teh better.

  2. Thanks so much guys... It actually means so much that you guys took the time to reply. I will be talking to my advisor very soon and plan on just emptying everything that's been on my mind for the past few months.. :( I was just really scared that's why I came on here to ask what the consequences are of failing 1b ... I'm still really scared.. :( what am I going to tell my parents.. :( they'll be so disappointed in me :( I keep telling myself mh y life and well being is worth way more than stupid university and education but sometimes... :( I've just wanted to kill myself feeling like that's the only way I'll feel safe.. Peaceful..

  4. If you're in engineering and your overall average is below 50 you're required to withdraw. So, failing all your courses would make you need to withdraw but you can try petitioning to change the decision from required to withdraw to failed required to repeat. Or you can fill out a qualify for readmission form and if that goes through you'll need a 70 to pass the next term. Goodluck!

  6. It'll be alright. If you're having thoughts of suicide, PLEASE go to counselling services and let them try to help. I've had friends fail in 1B and repetition back into the school so I'm sure you can too. If you decide to not continue at UW that's alright too. There are many ways to become a happy successful adult, a bachelor is not a necessity to that, especially not one from UW. :)

  7. you might even be asked to leave and come back in 8 months. Thats the best case scenario but that usually only happens in 1A I don't know if it can happen now.

  8. Thanks so much everyone... I know i said this once but im going to say it again.. it actually feels so good.. like you dont even know.. it makes me feel just so much better with all of you guys replying with such caring messages..

    Im still scared as to whats going to happen... I just really do wish I could just start over.. this past term and just start with a clean slate and I know for sure I can do so much better.. Its just this whole term ive been affected and just havent been able to study/work at all :( but it sucks because now idk what my advisor is goin gto say... :(

  9. my 1B term was very similar, and I submitted a petition to have all those marks removed from my transcript, due to extenuating circumstances that affected my academic performance. You have 6 months after this term ends to submit it. Ask your academic counsellor about that petition, it'll help give you a clean slate. I'm definitely better for it.

    Coming from Biomed and Psychology joint Major, happily in 3a

  10. Maybe look into other options? This field may not be for you?
