I just had my first year exams, and had somewhat of a memory blank on one of my papers and forgot a bunch of cases; I was still able to apply about 5-6 cases, although in one of my essays, I messed up on the facts of 1 of 6-7 cases that I used. As a result of rushing through the paper my answers also became fairly disjointed i.e. not well organised, although I believe I dealt with most if not all of the relevant issues. Am I going to fail? :confused: I'm really worried I'll have to resit now!

first year, if you get more than 40% overall you've done too much work

Don't worry bout it, one exam i did in january I'd have happily bet £200 i failed. it was that bad. But i passed. Albeit with a third, but at least i passed.

I think examiners (your lecturers) aren't too enthusiastic about failing people, especially in the first year.
Providing your answer was not drastically wrong, you should be able to get above 40%

Second year is by far the worst year, in my opinion. You'll be fine.
