From my personal experience, organic chem gets exponentially more difficult as the course continues. An F on the second test may be a sign that you're missing knowledge that you need before you attempt a third exam.

Hope that helps! ( I don't have any advice on if withdrawing is right for you, I don't know your situation.)

Please stop misusing this word. A piece of my math degree dies every time someone does and I'm afraid I won't have the credentials to get into school if it keeps happening.

Increases at a fixed percentage over time. Aka: Gets harder, faster. I used the word for a reason ;)

Proper use

Improper use as many funtions have positive second derivatives for all real numbers

Edit: A counterargument could be "How do we know that it's based off of a percentage? How do we know it's not polynomial, etc. ?"
