    I am currently half way through my second year at uni, with January exams coming up. I am still in first year mode thinking that my grades don't matter, however they actually do.

    If I fail my second year am I able to retake or is it even worth retaking if I'm capped at 40% anyway.

    Need help and advise!

    Should I carry on, swap degrees or just drop out?

    Speak to your tutor about your worries - they'll be able to reassure you and give you some help with your revision and they'll be able to explain what happens if you don't do as well as you'd hoped.
