Hi,

Your terminology has slightly confused me, however what i think might have happened is a process called condonement; when you fail a module by 2% or less and it's the only module you have failed it usually counted as passing grade without the need for a retake for the extra 2%.

If that's the scenario you are describing, then that uncompensated pass will refer to you being allocated the required module credits, with a grade of 38-39% for the module.

Hope that helps.

Do you have to resit a module if you have been awarded an Uncompensated pass?

No. It means you didn't achieve the the minimum 40% but you have passed the module regardless.
