    Hey guys,
    I'm a 2nd year microbiology student. I got a first in my 2nd year. I've had to do a resit for an exam component of a 15 credit module that is not essential for my degree and I don't know if I've done well in it at all. Do you think I'll be able to go into 3rd year if i fail the exam?

    I've got above a pass mark in the overall module that I had to retake my exam. I have above 40% which is the minimum needed to pass the module already so failing the exam component won't change the overall mark by much as I would still get above 40%.

    Im just worried because it's a retake and I don't know if I can enter the 3rd year with a failed exam component but an overall passed module.


    You need to check with your own university regulations as it varies by university. Some universities stipulate that you have to get a pass mark in the exam as well as the overall module. Some universities don't count coursework marks if you have to resit. Some universities allow you to carry a certain amount of failed credits.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
