    Probably more people than you think use tutors to help them with their degree, they just don't say it for fear of looking stupid. Do you have enough finance to undertake a degree again?

    It's difficult to answer that question for you, what were your scores in the first year? Have you identified where you went wrong first time and taken steps to correct it?

    well basically first semester i achieved quite good grades. averagely 60% apart from 1 module which included a group presentation, the others ruined it for me and then i became ill (mental health).

    Well, it was team work. If you allowed the group to submit work which wasn't to your standard rather than engaging with them to ensure the work met your standard (knowing full well you were all relying on each other for a top grade) then you ruined it for yourself by not standing up for yourself. And blaming other people looks poor.

    In any case, if you're in the right frame of mind now and you're over your illness, there's no reason why you can't go on to pass your degree.

    I'm confused as to why you'd need a tutor achieving 60% throughout your first year. I'd focus more on studying effectively and putting the graft in; save your money.
