I need advice please, my son has failed a first year resit, and despite passing all his other modules has been told by Cov Uni that he no longer has a place.

A very high percentage of students failed the first exam, approximately 50% of the group, not sure how many failed the resit though. Is there any appeal, or such like?

Do Cov Uni accept external canditates for examinations?
The only suggestion from the tutor was to resit the whole year. he is studying Sports and Excercise Science hons.

I dont know where to turn to help him, please help if you can

thanks

How badly did he fail the module? If he got lower than 35%, he probably will have to repeat the year, as they can only condone a marginal fail for a module. It may be worthwhile speaking to the academic registry and asking them about complaints/appeals. You can contact them by emailing [email protected] - I can't find a phone number, however.

I hope that helps.

Sorry about being slightly off topic but how did you get your results for the resits?
Also, i think it'd be best to email your professor for the module, there should be an email address on moodle. They'll be able to guide you.

On either the 17th or 19th September (can't remember which one) they will be released and you can find them on Solar. Hope this helps! I was the deputy faculty chair for E&C last year and i still had to go hunting for answers regarding resits...

Actually they're released today.

I checked Solar right now and it didn't update my results, but it allowed me to re-enrol.

Failed one of my moudles, so on solar it gave me the option to retake as a part time student. Rang my faculty for advice and options they told me they couldn't help. Have to wait till monday as student services don't open till then.

Hello,
I studied mathematical sciences in 11/12 year (first year). In that I failed one module, in the module I passed the coursework it's only the exam that I failed. So I did a retake for the exam last week but I think I failed that one as well. I m scared now what will happen? Will I progress to next year?

So what did you do next?

Hello,

I am a student at coventry and I am in the same boat as you. I failed a module by 1% and so I have emailed the academic registry, I suggest you do the same. Also you could phone the registry on a week day on 02476152192 and get help there. Unfortunately in addition to this I missed the deadline on a piece of german coursework (advantage module) back in June. The annoying part is that I got revision help of the module leader, emails about the time and place of the resit, and they have now turned round and said I won't be given a mark because I was absent from the original assessment in June. If I had known that I had essentially failed several months ago i wouldn't have bothered revising so much for the resit. As soon as I get a reply in regards to my 1% fail and my advantage module fail I will write another reply, hopefully then I will know the best course of action to take.

good luck

Farrell the posts above are from 2012 - don't think they will need the advice now tbh.

The university administrators should be asking why are so many students failing that module, and not other modules?

Is the grading too harsh?

Is the teaching standard for that module sheit?

Or are multiple students coincidentally 'worse' at that module, yet not at others?

The teaching institution has a responsibility to also teach, not just hand out coursework, grades and certificates.
