Go over it and try to understand what you did wrong, if he is mean about your grades try to tell him why or say you will do better and when you get your next test be sure to get a 100% and that will prove to him that the 59% was just a mistake.

I would recommend that you talk to your dad as soon as possible. By bringing it to his attention, you will be showing him how much you are growing up, as well as proving to him that you are able to take responsibility for your actions. You can also ask that the next time you need his help to look over your homework, he please do so to help you avoid this in the future. Besides, all Dad's are suckers for their daughters. Trust me, I am to mine.

Just use that as an example to try harder next time and study more. Theres nothing else you could really do.

Your fine.(: since you said you always get good grades, then they should be very understanding. After all, it's just one grade! Good luck.

Dont worry. My worst grade was like a 15% on a test! I just told my parents and they were like just do better next time, study, and be prepared. If that's your worst grade you are really smart and probably get really good grades. One bad grade probably won't upset your parents.

Just say to him you tried your hardest, and that you could ask to take it again maybe just be truth full and tell him what you think deep down

Have a teacher help you review it. Do better next time and study harder! Start staying in at lunch or after school to have your teacher help you with your hw or with things you're having a difficult time understanding. Perhaps see about a tutor or have a friend help you. Improving your future tests can pull up your overall grade. Promise yourself this will be your last bad test score this year! You can do it! Don't get discouraged-do better next time and make preparations to do so!

Tell your dad and face the music! Tell him that now you are stressed out and going to have to put off those chores so you can "Ace" the next major test.

Do not take the position with your dad it was his fault for not checking your work. It is yours and yours alone to make sure it's right. Do take the position that you realize you screwed up. Check with your teacher to see what scores you will need in the future to bring up your grade. If its a one time thing don't sweat the small stuff. I have a 15 year old son that's in all honors and AP classes. Sometimes he gets a low score but he knows what he has to do in the future.

That's what I do! But then I realized that was stupid, because then I had nothing to review. I'd recommend hiding it though.
~lol I have a secret stash. It burns to look at.

If you are usually a good student then just calmly let your dad know what happened. We all have our off days. You could also ask the teacher if there is a way to bring your grade up with extra credit.
