    I failed my third year dissertation and was withdrawn even though I passed everything in my nursing course Birmingham City University let me walk away with nothing but awards not recognised by anyone else. Anyone else experienced anything similar ? It’s been depressing knowing that I worked so hard and failing by 2 % on one assignment suggests that I can’t be a nurse anymore.

    Unfortunately that is the case in every university as far as I am aware. They feel it is better to give you some recognition of your time there than send you away with nothing to show for it. It won't be recognised elsewhere as it isn't a qualification in its own right.

    Assuming you've tried to appeal and asked for a remark, there is little you can do. Some universities will let you sit your failed year again, but that really is at their discretion and depends how many spaces they have in the next cohort.
