I nearly cried when I got my first and only B in college. Worst of all is that it was microbiology, which is the field I work in -.- The downside of being a straight A student I guess... you and your parents get too used to the A's rolling in XD But in reality a B is really good, and I bet a lot of people in your class wish to get a B!

A B is a good thing! I can understand if it was a C or a D... I'd be happy if I got a B. xD

I was a straight A student in high school (save for gym, I'm not super athletic) so I can understand the disappointment but really a B is really good. C's are around average so you're above that. Not everyone is great at everything :3 I used to do very well in English with minimal effort but put everything I had into Math.

Wow. Coming from someone with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, your parents need to chill. As long as you are doing your best, there is no reason for your parents to ground you. Explain to them that you are doing your best, and there is nothing you can do better at the moment.

Sometimes a subject doesn't come naturally. In that situation, do your best, and be thankful for what comes from it. I got 2 D's in college Chemistry. Did I do my best? Yes. Am I proud of my D, yes. Did I switch majors in order to study something I am better at? Yes. Lol ol.

Long story short, do what you do, and do it as well as you can. Be proud of your skill, no matter what level, because it is your best.

Sorry for the rant. :P

When I went to grad school for the first time (to get my MBA), I took a class where to professor set out to teach us how to fail and be okay with it. It was an awesome class, especially since all of us where high achievers. I have to admit, it changed my perspective on failure. Because, in reality there is no such thing as failure, it's just part of the learning process.

But a B is not failure, nor is it something to be disappointed in. At the University I attend, a B can get you a tutoring job in a subject.
