    If you submit all coursework and sit all exams I don't think you can re-do the year. You can only re-do the year if you fail the majority of the modules. Speak to your tutor and see if you can leave, and go back in September to re-start.

    With finance, if this is your first year of any degree you'll get funding for the repeat. But after that you'll only get funding for the rest of your course - no extra years.

    Ive only submitted a few essays and we dont have exams, as for coursework they put me on mittigating circumstances, the course is only an fda but they are turning it into a ba as they are just finishing writing the last year does that mean I cant do the ba if i redo this year ? x

    You will get funding for the FDA, + the top up on the BA + 1 extra year.

    If you re-do the year, you'll be using your +1 year.

    Did you submit mitigating circumstances, or did they just say they're putting you forward for them? As you have to apply for them yourself. It will help with coursework and it'll bump your grades up a bit.

    One of the main reasons i want to redo is there are ten of us in our class and my photography got pulled down by a few of them saying i blame everything on my pregnancy asn that I cant because there was another pregnant girl in our class and she was just fine but different people have different pregnancys.

    So feel bullied :/ which is bad seeing as these people are 18+ so id rather not be with em for the next 2 years aswell x
