    Hi guys.

    I failed one of my resits and can't proceed to year two.
    I've heard people who had failed one unit and got to redo it in the next year alongside the other units. But they decided to not letting me into second year and instead ask me to take a supplementary year. I think this is kinda harsh consider I only failed one unit and was not far from the pass mark.

    I'm thinking of appealing to the decision and can really do with some advises here.Has anyone been in this situation before or know anything that might help?

    Thanks a lot.

    I don't believe you much to appeal with, to be honest. Check what it says in your course handbook, but usually they're pretty black and white regarding failed resits. Sometimes students resitting during a subsequent year may not have sat the first exam due to extenuating circumstances, and therefore failing during the resit period was actually only their first fail. Depending on the course, and the module, they may equally have reservations about your ability to cope/succeed in later years if you've failed this twice. If you've had to resit other modules and your average mark is quite low then I can't see any way to convince them otherwise.

    If a supplementary year is what they've recommended then it may be your best choice - it allows you to resit what you've failed, without having to resit the whole year (I think).
