A. Listen, I understand you are stressed over your grades, which is fine and normal. However, one bad exam doesn't mean your entire professional life will be bad and that you won't succeed. If you feel like you want better grades, re-take the exams you can, and improve your grades. I believe that in order to succeed in life you need more than just grades, you need actual perseverance.
