    I guess we can't help anymore than advising you to contact the tutor and ask for some reassurance/the reason why they want a meeting. I'd recommend doing that after her last exam though (if possible), otherwise it could really knock her confidence if the meeting is a negative one.

    On the part of her tutor though, 2 weeks is quite a way away so it shouldn't be anything urgent...

    When is her last exam?

    Does she have a student handbook that documents any formal processes and what to expect.

    e.g. https://students.shu.ac.uk/shuspacec...aculty-involve

    it's not great it's likely she hasn't done too well at least what that guys link made it look like. She'll be given options which might look like this:

    1) Attempt a resit or make up assignment capped at 40% in (subject).
    2) Take an unverified degree (degree without honours).
    3) resit the year retaking any failed units capped at 40%.

    Or and this happens at very few unis she may be on the cusp of a first or some other grade and she will be offered a resit to achieve this other grade for instance if she has or is on track for a 2:1 but if she does a make up assignment or resit and gets a good grade she might get a first or what ever.

    but no most likely she has failed a unit and steps need to be taken.
