I am due my first year results back next Thursday (23rd). I have had decent marks so far and awaiting results on three exams. I revised my butt off and I am so determined, however I have convinced myself I have failed. Anyone know if its hard to fail the first year? Should I be worried. Help!

Your university and department will have rules. look them up, that's what lawyers do. It will indicate what you need to do to pass the first year. It would normally be to get a min of 40% in each module. It would be very hard not to. If you have worked as hard as you said, then I doubt very much you have failed.
In the unlikely event you have failed, then you will probably eb required to resit the relevant module. It will all be contained in the rulebook.

You would need to try to fail in order to fail, really. Examiners are quite reluctant to go under 40%, and it is quite difficult to produce work below that standard. You will have the opportunity to resit any exams you might have failed, as well.
It is best not to worry, as it is only first year.
