It could be that there's something going on at school. Issues with being picked on, the work is getting more difficult and she's having trouble keeping up.

Perhaps the pressures of conquering medical school so early has affected her - stress can be quite hard on little ones, especially if they feel pressured to achieve. Clearly you're telling the truth that she's smart; few so young can claim the same level of academic success... but maybe it's time to think about giving her a year off her studies, to relax - perhaps travel - and grow as a person. All the best, - Matthea

 Do you think your other kids can find out what is going on with her? Maybe she is embarassed to talk about it. She may be going through something or has some sort of stress. Who knows. But I hope she is ok and you get to the bottom of it.

It sounds like there's something going on in her life. She may be getting picked on in school and that's why her grades dropped like that.
