I received D in my first biochem class and I just retook it and got a C. I still have a chance to change my grade to pass and fail. Should I change Biochem to P/F even if I retake to again later on because having a C brings my gpa down significantly?
1) Better to salvage your GPA and take the P
2) If you're only getting a C the second time around, something is seriously wrong with your learning style.
3) As such, you need to fix this before anything else. Go visit your school's learning or education center.

Take the P.

You need to reevaluate your study habits. Hopefully, this isn’t a pattern in science courses. Fix it now before you get too many courses under your belt where you can't bring up your GPA. Also, make sure you fix this before you apply/get into medical school.
