Failed first year resit (University of Leeds)Watch this thread
So I'm first year and just finished taking the summer resits and thought I didnt do well in one of them (below 40%) . I have achieved 100/120 credits with some good grades so far, one of my failed modules worth 10 credits I expect I did kinda okay but another was a mess. I have emailed my private tutor and the University support but doubt i could hear back from them in short time, I'm very worried. Please give my advice on what are the options for me, what should i do as the moment as I really need to progress to my 2nd year..
Its up to yoru academic progression board.
If you are in the business school it says
7.3 Undergraduate Progression
To progress to the next year of an undergraduate programme students must
1. obtain 100 credits or more in the current programme year,
2. pass all those modules listed as ‘required for progression’ in the programme specification, and
3. meet any other criteria listed in the programme specification.
If you arent in the business school then you need to find the relevant rules in the similar page for your subject as above.
The board also has discretion.
Even if you have passed 1, then you may not pass 2 or 3. Its why you need a student advisor.
The final call is with the uni. I expect you not to pass criteria 2 or 3 and be asked to retake, but they might let you carry a minor module or give a condoned pass.
the exam rules are here, but you need to go and see a student advisor. They will say wait for the results.
