    I have my final year exams in 3 days and for one module I have learned everything but for the other I don't know a thing and the reading is based on complex articles there are no simple text books.
    So my aim isn't to get a high grade but just to pass? I have lecture recordings so can I pass an exam based on lectures alone? I just want to get above 40%

    Let's challenge that. Have you already started listening to the lectures? Do you know if lecture notes are on your uni website? From there are you able to gather more material through the internet that could give you the knowledge required for the exam?

    I'm currently reviewing the other course material that I already know cause I actually prepared for that in advance and I only have 3 days to learn this material from scratch which will consist of 10 lectures. The lecture slides are very vague.

    Most universities expect their students to know more than they are taught through lectures. That is, students should be independently studying the things they'll be tested on. From the "vague" lecture notes are you able to go on the internet and find "less vague" material related to what you're studying?

    Yeah and I found a help page for my course I think what I'll do is since I'm learning from scratch and I'm an auditory learner is listen to the recording I usually grasp things quickly and use past papers to narrow down the concepts and search for other relevant stuff would that help?
