Question

Hello, my name is Clara. I am a former homeschooler that has been thrown into the
public school system. I have not come accustom to taking hard tests, and dealing with
hard teachers. Just recently, I took a biology test and bombed it. I got a 10. Over all in
that class I had a 97, after the test my over all grade went down to a 61. I need to know
how I will be able to get my grade back up to the 90s. If not, I'm not allowed to go to
homecoming which is next week.
