I'm a failure that can't do well in school as hard as I try

I'm in 7th grade and I failed every final we had even though i studied and when I finally told my parents they said they were disappinted completely In me. what should I do to feel better about myself because I feel like an idiot.

Tell your parents you want to get checked out for a learning disability, especially if you studied and still failed. There are tools and tactic to help you succeed. you have five more years of school left and if things are done right they will be good ones.

Pay attention. If you are educated enough to type this, you're educated enough to hold onto enough information from class to pass the final. Finals are questions from the basic topics covered- and you're going to need to know those things in 8th grade. Is summer school an option for you?

Some people just dont test well. I didnt pass any of my finals but i still ended up with good grades! Just relax because nobody is perfect and i think your parents should understand that if you studied hard and tried 110% they shouldnt be upset...

Didn't your parents see you studying? I agree with Bluesun you need to talk to your parents about either being tested for a learning disability (I know that is not what you want.) or find some tutoring such Sylvan to help.

Maybe you could ask your parents to get a tutor? Tutors can explain things in different ways, that maybe your teacher can't.

you need to study before the test like when you are ready to go to school study until you have to leave

You are NOT a failure and your future is ahead of you. See a school guidance counselor and ask to be tested. Sometimes something as colored cellophane over your reading matter can really help, but it is IMPORTANT to talk to somebody, NOW!

Write notes. If you write a lot of notes and rewrite them, reread them, and you understand what it's saying then you should be alright. If you don't feel like that's enough ask a friend or parent to quiz you on it. The ones you get wrong, just go over it more. Also don't get stressed during tests. Just take it at a good paise and don't look at the clock!

You are not a failure. We can't all be Einsteins. If you truly put in quality time studying, you should understand your talents may lie in another venue. Maybe a trade school would be better for you. They are hard to get into, but they are real good. It could be the place where you find yourself the most comfortable.

Talk to your parents and teachers ,and find some guidance through them.
Never give up..Hard work is rewarding and makes you a better and stronger person. Life has its ups and downs, but with family support and self confidence, you should make out well.
One day at a time and with high self esteem. Keep the channel of communications open with your parents. God bless..

Mike life is not all about grades tho they are important.But it does not define failure.You're online and typing so you must be fairly smart:) So you can make yourself feel better by looking at what you missed in your studies.Everyone of them? This is end of school year I blame it on the teacher not the student.Your teacher should of taken time with you if needed to prepare you for the finals.Plus some of this is on you.When your not understanding go to the teacher your parents someone and say I'm not getting it help.There is always a new day and each day starts fresh.:) Hit the books ask for help just do the best you can do.:)Failure is a person who quits.
