Second years... question about doing an MSci Watch
However, im a little concerned for the upcoming exams, especially physics where I could fail possibly... and want to know that even if I do get my 40%, are there special conditions to be able to continue on and do the masters??? LIke do I have to get a higher grade or something this year??
I just became paranoid of this possibility, because 1. my friend from another uni seems to have been told this is the case for her and 2. We werent told anything similar. Then again, we werent told the day of our collections till 2 days before. 3. I have no faith in the organisation of Durham university.
Holla back, yall.
So I guess if you wanted to switch from BSc to MSc you'd have to have an average above 50%?
You need 40% average every year, if you get less than 50% in any year you may be advised to change to the 3 year but they can't force you since you passed.
I think you can only resit one module, if you fail one you will be made to resit and if you fail the resit be forced onto the 3-year and if you pass will be allowed to stay on the 4-year.
If you fail 2 you can resit one and stay on the 3-year if you pass the resit, otherwise you are out for good
Fail more than 2 and your gone. no resits.
I may be wrong on this and it may even differ from different departments. Good luck anyway
Yeah i think that might only apply to physics in the 2nd year and beyond now i think about it. I definately remember that you can take as many resits as you like in the first year now
yeah resits do change after the first year in all subjects, but of what I previously said applys physics students
Are you sure? I had a brief talk on later year physics courses at the end of the first year and thought that they said they can only make you change if you fail a module
Stop worrying, as we've been telling you all year.
I don't like the fact that it seems unclear what exactly we have to do, so I am just going to try and get better than 50% across the board and see what happens!
