Cause and Effect The Causes of Failure in College Failing a course in college is a situation many students in college have experienced As a student receiving a D in a class left me feeling like a failure and for the lack of a better word stupid A failing grade is not randomly dealt however as there are several factors that lead to a student receiving an F Most of the time these factors can be pointed out and a cause and effect relationship can be established The first and most obvious thing a student must do to pass a course is to show up for class Many students rely on a friend or other classmates to give them important information on a course that they do not like to attend However people make mistakes so misinformation on test dates and homework assignments can lead to work handed in late doing the wrong assignment and perhaps most detrimental not showing up for a test Many teachers give a syllabus at the beginning of the semester but most classes fall behind or move dates around to accommodate the teachers schedule and holiday breaks If class is not attended on a regular basis to make note of such changes a syllabus is useless and even dangerous as it can lead to unhanded-in assignments and unstudied-for tests Late incorrect or unfinished homework assignments add up quickly and can easily make a grade of C fall to an F If someone misses an important test which could be worth as much as 30 of a total grade and is not allowed to make it up passing the course may be impossible If students do not pay attention to the teacher their grades can suffer Many students who show up for class still struggle in the course This can be caused by not focusing on what the teacher tells you
