    Not usually but depends on the uni. You usually just need to pass the first year (40%) but it doesn't go towards your final degree mark.

    Mine doesn't, although it does in the sense that you need to pass it (get 40%) to continue on to 2nd year!

    I think it depends on your uni and course.

    It didn't for me, although you had to get 40 to pass. My second year was worth half what my final year is, so the split was 33.3% vs 66.6%. Check with your department, though. Different institutions and courses have different mark schemes.
