    I'm an idiot.
    I failed one of my second year modules, currently attempting the resit (due 21st) and I still don't understand the assignment! I don't know what to do I've left it so late.
    My question is, should I have a meeting with the module leader and see if he can actually explain it to me and if I can get my head around it or should I just leave it and retake the whole module next year?
    Any ideas?

    I don't know your exact circumstances, but generally I'd say give it a go. You're going to need it to be explained to you at some stage anyway, if you're thinking about retaking the module next year. At the very least, I would approach the module leader- if you don't understand, or you don't think you'll be able to get your head around it in time, then don't stress- there's always next year. You can afford to spend a year. If you don't know why you've left it so late; if you don't have any real reason for doing so, it's probably because you've been procrastinating- by taking action here, you would at least be improving your own approach to work. I've lost many a month to procrastination (often because I don't understand the assignment- I'll spend so much time worrying about how I don't understand it, I won't make any effort to understand it), so I know it's a hard habit to kick. All you can do is give it your best shot.
