    fail the class

    I was convinced that I simply would never understand math. Things continued to get worse for me--it looked like I might actually fail the class.

    Does the underined "fail the class" have the same meaning as "fail the subject/course"?

    I thought "the class" mean the whole students in a classroom.

    Thanks

    Jason

    A "class" can also mean a course of learning or instruction.
