    Hi @Port128,

    Sorry to hear this, it's probably best if you contact a member of your school's team. If you DM me on here with your school and course information then I can give you the contact information for whoever you need to get a hold of.

    Cheers

    Your department should tell you and we cnat really second guess what your department decides.


    The rules are contained here

    https://www4.ntu.ac.uk/adq/document_...ook/138197.pdf

    Its at paragraphs 35 to 48.

    We dont know what your results were, but they will ake into acount your circumstances, your previous performance and by how much you failed.

    1. If you were very close to the 40% needed, then they cna give you a compensated pass. Think,38,39%.

    2. If you were close, but they wont compensate then they may allow you to resit , but proceed into next year as well. The limit is normally 20 credits. Two modules is likely to be 40-60 credits, so although its possible, its less likely. You would have had to have been performing really well on the course.

    3. If neither of the above then they may ask you to resit., but not attend. If you failed in the summer theres normally a chance just before term starts to resit, but we are already in September so I doubt that applies in this case and resits will be next summer.

    4. If they feel none of the above, then you might be looking at retake which involves repeating the whole thing including attending the course again. the only good side is that if they accpet your ec, then they may not cap you at 40%.

    If they require you to retake rather than resit its an important issue because one will not cost you any fees, but a retake will use a full years student finance up.

    Fortunately Trent have provided useful information on the implications of this.

    You will just have to see what the review/ appeals board says and which of the four outcomes they decide on. Only they can tell you.
