OK, so I'm a first year geography student. I passed my january exams with straight 2:1's and am pretty comfortable in all my second semester modules, except one...
There's a coursework based module that I do not understand at all. It's based on 2 parts, 1 is a literature review and the other a statistical test review. Basically, I've already failed the literature review (as in, 38%, so properly failed) and although I haven't got my second part back yet, I cannot imagine it is good enough to pass. My figures were all over the place compared to other people so it's basically a 2,000 word report on nonsense numbers that are completely wrong.
If I fail this module, does it mean I have to resit the whole of 1st year, even if my other module results are good? I really don't want to resit so I'm getting kinda worried about the prospect.
It is highly unlikely that they will make u resit the whole year. As long as you have 40 % overall... the worst they can do is make you resit the module in summer.. or take it up in second year.. thats at my uni though!! check your uni handbook
