If I have a module which was assessed by two essays (70%) and an exam (30%) - if I fail the exam but still pass the module overall due to my high essay grade will I still have the option to retake my exam? Because I've heard you can only retake exams if you fail but does that mean the actual exam or the module 🤔

It depends on your universities policies some allow a pass if your overall module grade is over 40% but some would make you resit to pass the exam

When I was in my second year, I got 72% on an essay and 33% on an exam. Because of the weightings, I passed the overall module with just over 40%.

As it was considered a pass overall, I was told I was not eligible for a resit on an exam. This was because if I had done a resit, it would have been capped at 40%, which the module leader said would not have improved my module grade all that much.
