    Hi there,

    I just got my essay results for one of my modules I got 32% so I've failed and I'm trying to find out why, considering I've never had anything below 60% in my marks, but I've failed the essay. It's worth 40% of the overall module grade. Does that mean I've failed the module?

    Although the other course work is worth 60%, I still don't think that I'll get full marks to pass the module overall.

    I have no idea what to do, I'm in fourth year, so I think I'm right in saying that if I fail a module I don't graduate the same time as everyone else?

    Does anyone know what would happen in regards to resits or anything or appeals? It's never happened to me before and I am gutted.

    I think you can still pass the module depending on the rest of the assessment. If you do well it will pull your overall grade up.

    If you do fail, talk to your tutor, it might be that you might have to resit. Appealing would depend on how close you were to the grade boundaries but it is not always successful.
