HI

I am at the university of manchester and I failed one of my january exams (I'm in first year) - I got 32%, it was 10 credits and was a compulsory module. I had a meeting with my academic advisor who said I should be able to use it as a compensated fail rather than resit, but he's a new member of staff and seemed unsure and I'm just worried. Will I be able to have this as a compensated fail even if it was a compulsory module? Also how many credits can I fail and use as compensated fails before I HAVE to resit? As there is one exam I have this summer which I'm really worried about.

There should be a guide for your uni that explains how it works and how many you can afford to have... if it's absolutely nowhere in the site (perhaps on the same page as uni modules, mine is) then contact your uni.
