working up to capacity

DEAR ABBY: I'm a student who maintains a decent GPA. However, my parents believe they have a genius in the making.

Since I started at a new school, my mother has been pressuring me more than twice as much. She no longer talks to me except to pester me about that B or C in algebra or any other class. I understand that she wants me to be smart, and I know I should be trying to live up to her expectations of a flawless, straight-A student, but I don't believe I can. Please help me. -- UNDER PRESSURE

質問者が選んだベストアンサー

"working up to capacity" 「限界まで勉強に励んでいる」

"capacity" とは「限界容量」のことを言います。ここでは「頭(脳みそ)の限界」という意味で使われています。

話者は、母親から、もっと良い成績を取れ、とうるさく言われることに悩んでいます。ABBYは話者に対し、まだ成績を伸ばせる余裕があるか(伸びしろが残っているか)、或いはもう限界まで頑張っているのか、先生方に訊いてみなさい、とアドバイスしています。
