    So i recently passed all my modules for first year except half of one by 10%. But I got sent an email saying that I passed the whole course. When I looked at the module I failed due to that 1 half failing by 10% it said I passed by compensation.

    What exactly does that mean? Does it mean I need to re-do the work or not?
    I initially thought I didn't as everything on my university account changed to year 2 and wiped all the previous year 1 data saying I am registered and ready to start. However today I saw an email from head of the course saying my teacher in that subject is waiting for the second draft of work...

    I'm so confused. If I already passed why do I need to resubmit it? and why would she wait this long to notify me, after I received my final result on August 1st.

    Has anyone passed a module by compensation before? if so what happened?


    I had a module passed by compensation and I was not asked for any extra work or anything so I just did nothing and came back after summer and carried on as normal.

    I would definitely contact your personal tutor or the head of the department to clarify what they need, if anything.
