I think I'm going to fail a module or two out of 8. I found the two modules really difficult. I think I failed one of the courseworks for one module (I got about 37%) and the other module coursework I just managed to pass (41%). The coursework is worth 25% towards the final mark. I still have the exams to do but I'm finding it really difficult..I think I'm going to fail it. What will happen if I do fail? I'm in second year by the way and the modules are not core modules.

What's your department?

Summer resit => pass => put it behind you and ace 3rd year which is worth the most anyway

You'll be fine, your 3rd year is worth 60% right?

Try your best to pass this semester, but if you don't that's what summer resits are for :bigsmile:

resits - marks are normally capped at 40% unless you resit the entire year? Normally though single resits - you take them in the summer, and you only have to resit them if your marks are under the "compromise pass" (35-39%) whereby if you achieve this in a module that isn't a core one, you gain a pass for this module. Check your uni guidelines though, I'm sure it'll work out fine plus like Democracy said, you can ace your third year!!

If you fail 1 out of the 8, its an optional resit the following year. And normally if you've passed the first year & you fail > 2 in second your allowed to resit in the summer although I can't 100% confirm this.
From experience also if you've only failed 1 in 2nd year, there is no point resitting it as I am finding out right now: added work on top of 3rd year modules.
