    I'm not sure, http://www.maths.warwick.ac.uk/pydc/white/exams.html is very inconclusive.
    If Dave Wood said not, then my guess would be that your score would stand as a low score, though other modules would be taken into account.

    From reading that link, it seems like they're just saying "if you do well on the essential exams and have got good marks on class tests/assignments throughout the year, we don't mind if you fail one or two". I guess I can understand why they don't state that up front, as it would encourage people to neglect the less important modules.

    I was told (by my tutor and D. Wood said basically the same thing) that you have to pass the 4 important modules which are Analysis, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra and Geometry & Motion in your first year (I can't remember whether Foundations wasn't another one). So, even though Prob A (and Maths by Computer) are core, I gather that you can still fail them and face no consequences (as long as your total Seymour score for the first year exceeds 40%).

    Brilliant, thanks. This is what I was hoping
