Anais, I had a similiar experience last spring. I talked to my husband and son because I was certain I would flunk the class after failing the second exam. They told me to speak to the instuctor, and he told me that this was the hardest exam he gave, so to give it a chance. The third test wasn't much better, but I passed it. The fourth was great, and when I had the chance to do a project to possibly improve my average, I didn't do it (it could have also reduced my average)and passed the class with almost a B. The program I am in has a failure for anything below a C. The bottom line is communicate with your instructor and fellow students.
