    So I've just found out that I've failed two assignments from two different modules from my first semester (we take 6 , 3 first semester and 3 the second) here are my grades so far :
    Power politics ethics : 50% essay I got 32/100 , multiple choice worth 20% I got 120/200 , précis worth 30% I got 63/100
    Cold War , crisis : 30% essay I got 35/100 , exam worth 70% idk I just took the exam but I don't think I did too well.
    Classics of IR: 50% essay I got 65/100 , second essay hasn't been marked , not too sure how we'll I'd did in that one .

    So as you can see I hsve two failed essays from two different modules. Does this mean I potentially failed the modules , or even failed my first semester ? Do you think I would need to retake or would doing better second semester boost up my final grade at the end of the year ? I am first year btw . Thanks in advance

    Hey,

    I would suggest talking to your department or personal tutor, as they will be able to give you more information into the matter. Some departments will make you retake your assignments or they could allow you to pass and continue on to your second year. Really it is dependent on your department and how you do in you other assignments and exams.

    I would strongly suggest contacting your department though, to discuss your next steps.

    I hope this helps.

    Antonia
