Arrow Question about my grades - November 27th 2009, 03:28 AM

Right now, I'm extremely concerned with my grades.

I am in my sophomore year of high school.

I've always been in advanced classes and I enjoy challenging myself. However, I find that my grades have been slipping even though I usually understand the material.
I'm taking all honors classes and I'm really concerned with my GPA and class rank.

Last year I received my first C ever (in biology), but I did manage to get B's in the other marking periods.
This past marking period, I had a C in Algebra 2 and Chemistry but A's in all other classes.

I am determined to get straight A's, but will the C's in my past significantly affect my GPA and prevent me from any future scholarships?
I really want to be in at least the top 25% of my class, but I'm afraid that my grades won't allow this. :/

I also fear that I won't be able to get into a good college.
(I'm guessing that Ivy League colleges are out of the question?)

I'm sorry if I'm overreacting, but school is my top priority at the moment.
