The student pilot was on his first solo flight. His first takeoff, and traffic pattern went well. The student pilot said that his instructor told him to proceed with another takeoff and landing. On final approach, the student pilot said that he thought he was going to land short of the runway. He attempted a go around, but 'applied too much left rudder, thereby heading to the grassy area between the runway and the taxiway. The nose wheel hit the ground and [the airplane] skidded to a stop.' Examination of the airplane revealed no anomalies.

Probable Cause: the student pilot's failure to maintain control of the airplane during an attempted go-around.
