Well if you took physics freshman year, you're fine. But if not then you're going to need to repeat regents physics next year. Physics I'm pretty sure is not offered in summer school (I have friends who failed physics last year and are repeating it this school year)

If you fail a major class, you can still graduate but you can't get a brooklyn tech diploma.
You can't drop your major.

I do not believe AP Physics C has a pre-requisite so you would still be able to take that class...Don't fail AP Physics B. Don't let that be your option at all. Pass by all means necessary. Contact the teacher and speak to them directly and ask what you can do to boost up your grade - whether it be that you attend tutoring sessions, extra help outside of class time, whatever it is! Even if you get a 62 average overall, depending on the instructor, if they see that you are trying and putting your all into it then you might get that 65 to pass the class even if your average doesn't round up. High school is a time for you to become an independent learner. When you graduate and move onto to college, failing is literally not an option and if you fail, no body will care because you will be 1 of 450 in a lecture. Take advantage of your opportunities now!

There are options out there and the best thing about Tech is that these options are opened to you instead of having you seek them out. The tutoring schedule should be available at respective department offices. I am assuming that AP Physics should fall under the Physics department, go to 2E15 or 2E16 (forgot which room ...it's been a while since I've been in Tech - pretty sure its 2E15) and check out the schedule!

Physics department is actually moved to the 1st floor east side since you've been here Nick!
It's 1E9? Somewhere around there, if you ask your physics teacher they will know the exact room location.
