    Hello everyone.
    I am a std of BE electronic engineering. Now a sophomore, I had a bad
    result in the freshman year. An overall result of 64.6 percent and
    failure condoned in two subjects namely basic electrical engineering
    and chemistry.
    I am very much depressed. I can score better and increase my
    percentage in the coming years because first year is only count 10
    percent in the final marks for obtaining a degree. What i am concerned
    about is the 'failure condoned'. Does this have a bad effect on my
    academic career. Is appearing in supplementry exams (it will be count
    two attempts) better than 'failure condoned'. Is there anyone who has
    this tag attached with him. Plz help me, i am very tense and cannot
    concentrate on my studies due to these issues.
    Thanks in advance.

    It sounds a little to me like an attempted solution to tests. Tests
    often test what you happen to remember that day, not what you've
    learned in the class. (Don't say final exam, they've got the same
    problem.)

    In technical degrees, something won't "click" with a student until one
    day he's maybe driving down the road and suddenly makes the connection
    between two theories, or how something works. Perhaps the "failure
    condoned" idea is to combat this, also.

    If you're worried about your academic career, find someone who knows
    about this and go and talk to them. If you can't, you're at the wrong
    school.
