    I attend the university of Surrey, and I am in some confusion about what is right and what is not.
    If I fail my retake for an exam, but have passed everything else with 2:1's, and 1st's, meaning I pass the year overall but just end up failing one module, does this mean I cannot do my placement, and will have to carry on straight into final year? Or will I be okay?
    Please help

    From what i heard from my course rep and iirc, if you fail a module only, you can start your placement as usual but you will have to resit. If you fail more than one, you can only start after you pass the resit
