    I have just received my results for the final resit exam I took and I've failed. What's annoying the most is that I did a foundation course first, passed that and when I started my on my first year I passed every other unit assignment/examination expect for this one. Also the unit exam was not even relevant to my degree at all it. It was just thrown in there because there were not many students on the course... It was also something I had passion in which i know for a fact i could have passed the second and third year easily.

    It feels like I've wasted two years of my life and at 25 with no prior qualifications except for college btec, that's not good. I No idea what to do, my CV isn't going to look good either. I don't want to be stuck in a boring 9-5 job on minimum wage all my life that I have no passion/interest in.. I feel like a failure

    Really sorry to hear this but don't give up!

    You could always try to go through clearing this coming September and try to get on another course, similar to the one you were on.
    Could there be any mitigating circumstances which made it hard for you to pass, you could try that route and see if they will let you re-take the first year again instead of afew failed modules.
    Try speaking to your personal tutor, an email to ask what your options are.
    If you are really clueless perhaps email somebody at UCAS or admissions at the universities you are interested in going to.

    It could also be wise to take a gap year, try and find a job, something tie you over and work and save a little. Use that time maybe volunteering in the field you want to go into and just really deciding what you want to do.
    Perhaps University isn't for you, an apprenticeship could be a better route for you.
    I hope this helps !

    I've already had 6 months off since the final resit was a no attendance year. I dont have time to be wasting really, I'm getting old hahaha. There is a similar course at another university which is much better. I am not sure if i have the required UCAS points though. Do you think there will be a possibility i could get on maybe my old university could help with that??
