Trying hard is important but what you have to do is to find out why you are failing and then
get help to overcome your weaknesses in science. You need to tell your mother and together
you need to come up with an improvement plan.

This student and possibly her mother need help and intervention. The student is obviously in
over her head and has no idea how to solve her problem. She also appears to be afraid. Your
Q&A continues to spotlight the problems of the grading/teaching system as it exsists.

I agree strongly with both of your observations.
