    dosn't it depends on how your degree is weighted, is it 60:40


    the arithmetic average and dominant quality
    i'm going by my uni now, your rules could be different
    we go on a average mark then add all the credits up, like if you have 150 credits at a 2.1 but no more than 90 at a 3rd or fail your be given a 2.1 even if you don't have the % required by arithmetic average

    but unis can be different

    You will need to check your course documentation, but at my University there are six 20-credit modules. All parts of the assessment must be passed in order to progress on to the next stage. The Diploma and Final stages are weighted 40:60. In borderline cases, at least 7 out of 12 modules should be in the higher category. Students re-tain the right to be re-assessed in each module once only, providing they have met the attendance and submission requirements.

    In my old department you couldn't continue/graduate without getting at least 120 credits per year.
    This is also the case in my department, but students normally retain the right to be re-assessed once. If they then fail the module, it is necessary to pick up an additional one the following year. In some circumstances, repeat years were granted on the basis of exceptional personal circumstances or when a student had failed the entire year, but this would be capped at only 40%.
