First year pass rateWatch
More about Aston University
If an essay counts for 20% of a unit and I fail that essay but then I absolutely ace my final exam so I ultimately end up with a pass I won’t have to retake that unit if that makes sense.
Talk to one of your lecturers or a tutor if you have one and find out the process at your university. Hope this helps
I just got my grade back for one of my modules and only got 32% which i knew i was going to fail because i found it really hard. Does anyone know what happens next? Do i need to pass all my modules to get onto second year?
Sorry to hear you didn't do so well.
You will need to pass all of your modules to progress on your course. Due to the fact you were 8% off the pass mark, it's most likely you'll be set another exam or piece of coursework to complete around September time. This will be capped at a 40% pass mark. However, as you're in first year this won't affect your degree classification.
You should book some time with the lecturer through WASS to discuss your mark, they will be able to tell you where you went wrong.
