In 1967 I failed Freshman English in college. In 2022, I reprise a class from 50 years ago with the same results: I failed it a second time!
The 1967 "F" was because I went home for Christmas and did not return to college for final exams. I only remember discussions with the teacher about "Why?" I should be taking the course. I have no memories of the quality of the work I submitted during the semester. [ FWIW, I did not return from the Thanksgiving break the following fall, either.]
The 2022 repeat ended with the same grade,,,
