I am currently doing a BEng course called electrical and electronic engineering, my first year I fail 4 modules and I retook the modules I failed and this year, I passed two and I failed two. If I have failed only 30 credits worth of modules can I continue to the second year or will I fail uni??

Heya--how do you know you failed the two? If it's through your student record, what is the code next to the grades?

I'm sorry to hear you failed two modules again. Are there any extenuating circumstances that perhaps led to this?

The reason why I know is because I did really badly in my opinion in ref/Def maths exam and they have very short notice to revise for these exams and didn't give much help when it came to revision. I did my own revision but the past paper were not similar to the test.

I have tried my hardest with both attempts because I was 3.4% off in a digital electronic exam and the maths wasn't done so well which was frustrating and I really like the subject.

i think it depends what your uni requirements are, i think for most you need to pass all the module you take to pass the year right? in that case you would probably have failed the year again. I think you might need to rethink your options if you’re struggling to pass the retake year as well

Okay so nothing is confirmed at all yet! Take a deep breath, there's still a chance you did better than you thought. I would go ahead and contact your programme tutor, and say that you aren't feeling too confident in your ref/def exam and inquire after the consequences. I only know the regulations regarding exam/module failures for PAM, so I can't conclusively say what will happen next--best to contact the programme tutor!

I know it can be so stressful to do a ref/def with that short notice period....whatever happens next, I would take a longer look at your study strategies though and see how to best go about studying such maths in the future.

have your results actually been released yet or are you just guessing that you’ve failed two of the module? because it sounds like you haven’t seen the results yet but you’ve written it out as if they’ve already been released, if you’re sure you’ve failed those two modules then yes you’ve probably failed the year, if your results haven’t been released yet then you never know maybe you’ve passed.

A quick google search shows that stands for 'fail, no further attempts'. As to what that means in your particular circumstances, I don't know. You can find your uni's academic regulations and check for yourself. Speak to your uni asap.

If you're unable to pass a first year module then you seriously need to think about what you're going to do differently next year, assuming you're able to move on.

Hi @Ogara

As @Michelle Bieger said it would be best to contact your Programme Tutor as soon as you can and they can talk you through your options.

Thanks,
Heather
