    I'm really confused at the moment.
    I need 90 credits (out of I think 120) to graduate from the first year. And I took 8 modules for this year.

    How many modules do I need to pass in order to graduate from my first year? (My uni is part of the university of london group)

    I'm not sure how the credit system works!
    Also, what happens if you fail your first year? i.e. you pass some modules, but fail some at the same time??

    Each module is worth a certain number of credits, at my uni usually twenty but sometimes ten. So it sounds like what you need to do is pass enough modules for your credits to add up to ninety.

    If you fail your first year you'll either be made to repeat it, resit your failed modules, or if you were really bad thrown out. But if there's extenuating circumstances for why you failed you might sometimes be allowed to pass anyway.
