    Hi there, wondered if anyone out there can help me.

    I am a 1st yr Undergrad, studying 6 modules in each Semester. One is really really tough, with a unhelpful lecturer, and this module is poorly structured etc, so you can see where my problems are coming from.
    I am a clever guy with straight A's at A-level, but this module (maths based) is really worrying me! This is not a "core" module however is studied in both semesters!

    If I achieved good grades in all my other modules (say 60%+) which I'm confident of doing, and still failed miserably in this module (and failed the re-sit), would the uni still kick me out and not allow me to progres into the 2nd year?

    It is an Accounting/Finance Degree... is it also possible if they would allow me to do another course next yr such as Business Studies for example? I am scared that I will fail my 1st year, and then obviously have no uni to go to in my 2nd yr (because UCAS deadline is very soon), hence meaning I would have wasted 2 years of my life!

    Any help/advice is appreciated

    One module shouldn't matter, we have to pass all ours to progress (40%), but if say you got 70% in them all and 35% in one, they would compensate that module (upto 40% and take the others down slightly), that's done on a situational basis though.

    Yh i forgot to mention I could get away with 31% if my other modules are fine (which should be the case), however 30% in this module seems very tough to say the least!
    Guess I should start working even harder towards it, and sacrifice marks in the other modules to make sure I get at least 30-35% in this one :mad:

    Hmm, mine are different to this. It doesn't even out the same. You have to get at least 40% in ALL your modules to pass the year.

    Depends upon university, and furthermore upon the department you're in. You should contact them or look through your university website.
