What should I do...

i have a final and an essay both due monday. the essay can be done by saturday but that leaves only 2 days to study for the final...

my mom, who had surgery last week, is still sick and was looking forward to seeing me for Easter.

i told her i had a lot of work and she said it was ok if i didnt show up, but you could tell in her voice, she wanted me there.

so it pretty much comes down to: fail exam or see mommy.

Key point about each option:

- my mom is not terminally ill and will eventually make a full recovery
- i need a 75 in the course in order to stay in my program

I think your mom would be more disappointed if you didn't pass your class and failed out of it. Call her on Easter and talk to her for a while.

Just tell your mom that you need to pass the class and that you will come visit her soon. I think she will understand since its school related.

I would go see your mom bro. Though she is not terminally ill or anything like that, what if something bad happens and then you will be saying, "Man I wish I would of seen my mom, but now I dont have a chance too." "But at least I passed my exam."

I'd do both. Its not always giving someone your undivided attention that makes the difference, its just being there. You could sit by the bed and study while she reads the paper(after the initial chat, anyway). Or work out a way that she can help you study with question cards or mock tests. At the end of the day, revision a few days before the exam should be going over stuff you already know to recap. There is very little you can learn in a short space of time. Thats just what I'd do, anyway. GL with your exam!
