    I've just completed all my exams for a Life Sciences foundation degree, i've had good attendance, done all my work to a good standard etc. Most of my grades are good; i've been getting 70% in most things when i need 55% to progressed to next year... However, in the chemistry module I only got 40% in the January exam and i'm not confident I got what I needed in the summer exams to progress to next year

    At a level I got A*AAB and A* in my EPQ but they were all in the wrong subjects for the degree I wanted to do. I have tried to ask my personal tutor but her attitude is "you haven't failed yet".

    Your uni is the best place to look for advice. There may be info in the handbook. Your personal tutor is being difficult but she is right. There's no point in worrying about something that hasn't happened yet. You may have the chance to retake.
