As long as your midsemester mark is pretty good and everything else is on track, I think you’ll be fine.

Nah, I wouldn't worry about that at all. Teachers are aware of what happens in second semester.

You know I never understand why they would change the system to semestered; personally I think that sucks in high school. But yeah to reiterate... you won't be the first to have that happen to you, you'll be fine

Don't worry about it! I'm in the same boat where I have english second semester. I think it you work hard you'll be fine. I found that what really helped me in grade 11 was to read some of the books before the course (especially Shakespeare! that get's me everytime) then even if I didnt understand it, I was still ahead of the game when the course came up! Hope this helps :)
