Contact the department, and ask if there's a way around it. If not, then you'll probably have to repeat it. They had let people off before (some of my friends) for some courses mainly due to them doing a very numerical A-level subject (e.g. Physics, Maths).

Kent has an investment banking course? Or do you mean something else?

If it does, that course wouldn't be in any way useful for actually getting into banking.

Why
1) kent is not a core recruiting school for investment banking at any banks (which is important because uni means more than course for this industry). you'd be at a severe disadvantage vs people at core/target schools. this means were you to try and break in, you'd need to be one of the best students at your university.

2) an "investment banking" course is absolutely pointless. banks take on graduates from all sorts of degrees, put them through a training bootcamp and then expect them to learn on the job. you're better off doing a more traditional course like finance, or economics or physics or w/ever
