Failing chemistry

Recommended Posts

So My boyfriend is failing Chemistry. We have no idea why but he literally has an F. He's such a hard worker so it's not like he's lazy or not doing his work. We're juniors in IB and we have a great teacher. I've helped him study for tests before and... he wants to give up. What do we do??

I have no idea why he has no idea why he is failing. Really, how could he not know why he's failing?

Not such a great question IMO. Go on, go fix it.

Well since it's your first post, I do not want to traumatize your first experience being your first replier. Please read the threads on how to post, and although your scenario might be acceptable, please post and ask questions smartly.

Seriously, you're IB1 students. O.o

Just find out why he's failing and do something about it.

Okay, I am going to make this short and clear. If you guys have a great teacher, still in IB1 and you help him with test revision and he still gets a bad grade, there are two possibilities:

He is just not a chemistry person and should drop it immediately.

He doesn't want to put an effort because ..well lots of reason, doesn't like it, not bothered...etc. If that's the case he still drops it or stops being a lazy idiot-wanna-be and starts putting an effort.

ROFL!!! if this were on TSR, you would've got more than 30 reps

to OP, did the teacher tell him what percentage an F is? if so how many percent is it? might be different with the IB boundaries, so you shouldn't worry too much.

I feel the same way sometimes, but motivation, pure motivation is needed to get through it! :D

I also have a problem with physics, but I'm slowly coping! :D

You can do it!

You may want to but more books, like Chemistry for the IB Diploma by Hodder Education, or try out some of the experiments in the book. :D
