    I think I failed my 1st year of uni and I was wondering if I would start a new year in September or join the returning January starters.

    You will have to wait and see what the results are and they will give you the options. Impossible to say as we dont even know what you are studying. It could be simple resits, it coul;d be retaking the year or they could withdraw.

    I would have thought that results would be out by now and that you would know if you failed. When was your latest exam sitting? Have you already done any resits? Are you part of the Sept 2015 intake?

    Well considering it BPP I would have though so.
    You dont have the results yet. Wait for them.
    The process of what happens is it goes before the review board. The process is in the BPP handbook, which you need to look at on the website. They will tell you what to do based on your results.

    That means you have already done resits in August or that you are an accelerated student. You can either go through your handbook to check what the next step is or you can contact you student manager. I would have thought that your student manager would have already contacted you to invite you for a meeting, since the term is starting next week. Have you checked your email(s)?

    There are many combinations of circumstances that result in various answers to your question. So unless you are willing to give your full details of your circumstances, you aren't going to get a great answer here.
    If you are an accelerated student, you will be taking any resits this term unless you negotiate otherwise, plus you may be given the option to resit non-core modules up to a certain amount of credits along side the continuation of your course to prevent you being taken off the accelerated stream.
    If you have already taken resits, then you will be made aware that you are on your third and final attempt to sit the module, unless you have exhausted that as well, in which case you would have to negotiate with your student manager whether there is a way of staying on the course or not.

    From the OP, I gather it is at least one module in the second term that you have failed? If it is only one module, then I doubt you would need to do whole term, let alone a whole year again. So unless your module(s) is/are not running this term (due to no intake in May), I would think you would at least have the option of resitting the module(s) this coming term; though I can't be sure as I am not at BPP Law School and not familiar with your exact situation.
