Female, 22

Coming from an Asian household, failure is considered a disgrace in my family so I grew up with that mentality. I've just had one of my university exams of which I'm pretty sure I'll fail (didn't answer 3 questions that totals to 40% of the exam). To top it off, I got the feedback from my group a*signment and the feedback was scathing; he explained that a diagram we drew was completely wrong. I used a similar diagram in the exam which was worth 20% so I know that my chance of failing is ridiculously high. I'm terrified that my parents will compare me to one of my smarter cousins or they'll call me stupid and lazy. My mind is already in a dark space and just imagining these scenarios all because of one failed subject is making me go deeper. I don't know what I'll do when the final results come out...
