I can't learn new things....

Postby Student101 » Fri Nov 09, 2018 8:12 pm

I'm not sure if this is supposed to be here, but since self-improvement is part of this thread, so I thought I'd talk about this here.
I'm a student and can't seem to graduate, I failed two times and in subjects that aren't that difficult, but since they introduce concepts I can't seem to get familiar with them. Other subjects on the other hand where other people have problems, I do fairly well or really well, but fail miserably in those others. I can't seem to learn new concepts, and I know it's a mistake, but I'm starting to get increasingly frustrated with that fact. How do I get my momentum back?
Thank you for your answers!

I'm assuming you've already put this question to your tutors. It's their job to get you through it.

How interested are you in the subjects you're failing? Being unable to get familiar with the concepts suggests the subject is alien to you. You can't make yourself be interested in something that doesn't float your boat.

If the concepts are integral to your course work and you're determined to stick with it, get hold of some text books that aren't on the curriculum or design a research project for yourself. There's nothing like mastery to increase our enjoyment of a subject.

Maybe this is cause of stress?
