Rebecca’s Answer

Everybody have their strength and weaknesses. Therefore, we may be good at some subjects and no so good in some subjects.
For those subjects that you are not so good, have you reviewed the reasons? E.g. you do not understand the subject or not work hard enough? ,etc. Firstly, you need to identify the root causes. If you do not understand the subject, you can seek for assistance from the teacher or form some study group with other classmates who are good at that subject. That can help you to understand and develop the skills required for the subject.
On the other hand, one subject should not affect your career decision. You should develop your career on the direction where you are interested on.
Hope this helps! Good Luck.

Rebecca’s Answer

It really depends on the subject. For example, if you are bad at science, you probably can't be pre-med (you would have a very hard time getting into medical school--and what kind of doctor would you be? On the other hand, if you are bad at business, you can usually find another route in--for example a communications degree often has a Public Relations component, or you could study human resources. Some careers are dependent on a major, but not all. However, I agree that strengths are important. You're more likely to enjoy something that you're good at, and it's nice to get rewards, like good grades. Then you can use your school's career services office to figure out careers that would work well for someone with that major.

Often to find a major, you weed out the things you AREN'T good at, or do not like, and figure out what is left over. Then decide what appeals to you by looking at courses in that major.

Rebecca recommends the following next steps:

Research various majors or programs.

Matthew’s Answer

I agree with Rebecca here. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. Everyone. However, you should let your strengths shine! Focus on your strengths, and keep a positive mindset about your weaknesses. Know your weaknesses, and put some time into trying to strengthen them. But do not let them hold you back from fulfilling your dreams.

Matthew recommends the following next steps:

Do a SWAT analysis on yourself. Understand your weaknesses, and create a plan to address them. Do not expect them to turn into strengths overnight. Addressing your weaknesses does not always mean overcoming them. Focus on your strengths, and find what you want to do based on them.
