Failing my Final Year ProjectWatch
What happen if I don't clear my project? Will I not get a degree? Even if I get a degree will it be with honours or not? Do they fail students if they don't get any results?
It just keeps on worrying me as I have spent a lot on my education and would feel really bad if I fail it.
That said, usually the process for failing the dissertation or project, but passing overall, is that you'll be awarded an ordinary degree instead of an honours degree (unless they feel the fail is borderline and you've done very well across the board otherwise).
A friend of mine that did engineering and didn't submit a project/dissertation at all and just scraped a pass overall with his exams balanced against that 0 in a quarter of his final year work was awarded an ordinary degree. However as he didn't submit for this, it was technically an incomplete module, and not merely just failed; had he submitted something not satisfactory, it is possible he would have had the option to resubmit it or retake the year.
