    hey I'm looking any advice anyone has to offer.
    Basically I think I am going to graduate with a 2:2 but I may have failed one of my final year module. I also have a graduate job lined up in a great firm starting this august.
    Is it better to repeat this exam so that I have passed all my modules even tho I will still obtain a 2:2 for future jobs. With that said I will have to graduate in decemeber not this summer and I will also have to takea day off in a new job I have only just started to sit this exam.
    Or is it ok just to move on with a 2:2 even with a fail and start building a career for myself? Could the one fail hold me back from future jobs


    * i can defintely still graduate and I can still start my new job with a fail. That's why I'm not sure

    You have to assess correclty the impact of the fail.
    You need to read the rules of your department.
    They may not let you graduate unless you pass them all.

    You also need to read the terms of your job offer anc check they will still give you the job despite the failed module.
    If they wont then you need to see what they say about you having failed, but only after you have worked out how you will deal with Uni and the impact on your degree.

    If they are ok with you starting, then I would resit the exam on the given date and give your new employer plenty of notice.

    I would suspect a failed module would prevent you graduating. Ignoring it may no be an option.

    No ive checked don't worry! I can still graduate and still start my job with a fail. So that's why I'm not sure what to do. I would hate the fail to impact me in later life but if I can just move on and do great in my new job without delaying my graduation or taking time off my new job would that be best.

    Why didnt you say that in your OP?

    Its personal choice , then. I doubt your new bosses would care at all whether you took a day off, you wont be significant enough. I would reatke it as a matter of pride. Not sure why it has no impact whatsoever.
