    Hey Guys,

    SO I've just got my results back from my 1st year January exams and I didn't pass I spoke to some of the other students in my course and they say if I don't pass this single exam, I won't get into 2nd year of my course.

    Is this true?

    I've been doing so well in other coursework and modules, including the module I got my exam results from, I just don't do exams well, no matter how hard I try. I just seem to panic in the exam room.

    Any help?

    Hi,
    Sorry to hear that you didn't pass , it sucks to feel like you work so hard, and then realise you haven't passed. Can I just ask, do u mean first year in terms of A-Level?

    Ok, well I am not too sure about University, in terms of exams, however surely you could re-take the exams? It may just incur a fee, but surely they can't just kick you off the course for failing exams, there usually is an alternative . Good Luck

    It's possible that any retakes you do will be capped at 40% though

    For most universities this will be the case, yes. Luckily you're only in first year so it won't affect your final degree classification, but it will in future years

    This is what I mean, why will 1 exam effect my whole chance of getting into 2nd year? It seems ludicrous.. I've been doing so well with other modules and coursework, and 1 exam, POOF! Chances are shortened.

    Because this isn't school anymore. Most of the time, modules in first year relate directly to modules in further years. How will they expect you to cope in further years if you can't even get 40% on a basic first year module?
