...but pass the rest? I'm doing a maths degree and it's all pretty straight forward except the all dreaded statistics, i'm sitting here with coursework in front of me with no idea what to do & it's in for tomorow & am wondering if it's worth bothering with statistics at all, the time might be spent better elsewhere...

It depends on the weight that this particular unit holds for your first year. If you do well on everything else though, you should pass overall.

well read your deparment handbook regulations thingy
the way it usually works is if you fail you have resits, and if you fail them you resit the year or continue into 2nd year but sit the failed subject aswell as "examination only"
In my course if you get a D, you pass. So if i get D's in everything i get to proceed into the next year, or achieve the minimum required GPA. But if you fail i would think you would have to resit it. If you fail and then dont resit, you would be refused credit and therefore not allowed to proceed into 2nd year unless you appeal.
At least thats the way it works in my uni. As i said, see if your department has a regulations handbook online and read that.

depends on the unit/degree!
if it's a prerequisite, you obviously can't move on directly to the next part of your degree. you'd have to arrange a way to repeat it...which can be tedious.
but don't despair just yet! jump in tomorrow and try your best, you never know what might happen.

Dunno about your uni, but at Durham if you fail any modules in May/June you resit in August. If you end up with only one failed module you're transferred to the "ordinary" as opposed to the "honours" programme, and if you fail more than one you get kicked out basically. But that's just Durham, probably different at other unis.
