    I think I am going to fail on one of my module on semester2 exam. Can I have a chance to resit the exam or I am going to repeat straight?

    a. In order to progress to Part II of the degree programme, students must achieve honours -equivalent standard in the Part I examinations. For an individual unit this requires a mark of 40%. In assessing overall performance in Part I, one mark below 40% will be condoned provided it is not in a core unit for the student's degree programme, and provided the aggregate across 8 units is at least 315. Core units for each programme are as specified in the Faculty Part I booklet. Some Departments may designate all Part I units as being 'core'.

    b. Students failing to satisfy the examiners will be required to retake all units in which they have secured less than 40%.

    I believe this is the rule.
    So the answer is if its a core unit, then they can overlook it. If its a core unit, then you will just resit it.
