I’m a Physics PhD student in a US university who qualified for the PhD level and waiting for the comprehensive test.
In the first year of my PhD, I wasn’t able to cope up with the pressure and that caused bad grades. The result from first and second semester is below:
A, B-, B ; A, B, B+.
In the second year, I eventually understood the pressure and was able to cope up the coursework pressure along with the research pressure. And, eventually I did well in the second year. My result is:
A, A, B+ ; A+, A+, A
My question is how bad influence will my overall score appear to the academia and industry?
NOTE: My supervisor is pretty happy with my research work.
