I'm currently taking biochemistry and I currently have a D in the course. I am either thinking about taking it Pass/ NC (no credit) or either dropping the course.
A "C" is considered a pass at my university.

I really enjoy Biochemistry, but I just can't seem to make good grades. I've been consistently scoring below class average on all the quizzes and exams.

Should I hang in the course and try to get a C??? I think there is a 50/50 chance I'll get a C or D.

I don't know what to do. This is the class that I've been keeping up with, but I'm not getting the grades I want. :cool:

I'm taking 18 credit hours total. Taking physics 1 and a upper level bio.

Also I am applying to dental school next summer.
