Have you ever failed an exam on Coursera before?

I was so close to completing my second Coursera course ever (Think Again II) today, but when I took the final exam for that course, the questions were really tricky (even though I took all of the practice quizzes and did everything else), and as a result, I've failed three times. Now, I have to wait awhile before I could retake it, and I'm watching most of the lectures again just to understand what I have missed. Have you ever failed an exam on Coursera before? If so, then what would you suggest that I do?

Oh yes......multiple times. Luckily there is online support and you can redo quizes and assignments. I felt like there wasn't a lot of pressure since I could repeat tests.😄

I see. Well, what did you do to help you pass the exams on Coursera the second time around or the third time around?

Hello @eliemuller,

we all face issues in understanding some concepts while taking any course, and I recommend you to post your questions and issues in the discussion forums of the current course.

Thank you very much for your response, but I must tell you this. In the course that I'm taking, the discussion forums are only for the discussion questions, and the professors will get really mad if I do go that route.
