    What happens if you just pass 2, due to poor exam technique (but get an average of more than 120?) Must you take a year out? Isn't it your choice whether you continue into second year?
    No you would be contacted by the Student Progress Panel to discuss your situation.

    to take on six modules is actually pretty hard. if you were to be in this situation i think it would be wise to actually take a year out and find out where you went wrong.

    So, in this case as above, we will need to retake just the 2 modules that we have failed ? or 4 modules again during the next academic year ?

    So, do you think it's really wise to take a year out ? Is this going to be a waste of time ? and so that shows we don't even need to be in the school throughout the year except during exam period ? Or do you think it is better to pay for tuition and go for the classes and lectures for the courses you have failed ?

    It means if you failed 3 modules and didn't pass them at your 2nd or 3rd attempt (or if you have 3 fails in 3rd year) then the highest grade you can get is a Pass. Basically, at the end of your degree they look whether you have 3 fails which are outstanding.
