How to Deal with Getting a Bad Grade in College 😢

1. Understand the Feedback

In order to get over your grade, it is best to understand why you got it. Whether it means going to office hours or looking over the test corrections. Once you understand your mistakes, plan for how you are going to do better next time!

2. Take a little homework break!

Do a face mask, watch a classic movie, or hang out with friends to get your mind off things. Remember: this grade will not define you!

3. Make a plan

Now that you understand why you got the grade you did, make a solid plan to guarantee you do better next time! This may include studying in a different way or trying to participate in a study group!


It is just a grade and you will do better next time with hard work! You got this. Just believe that and it will all work out!
