Hi

I study History at University of Hull, just finished first year. I have Asperger's syndrome and I found the transition between Sixth Form and Uni rather traumatic, and so the work produced in the first couple of months was a bit ropey. I failed 2 modules, one at 25% (ouch!) and the other at 37%. I've taken resits for them both, I'm very confident with the latter module but I suspect the 25% one is a lost cause. I've searched for ages for info on progression and I can't find anything so I'm assuming that they are not so strict as to prevent progression over one module? I didn't fully understand it and quite frankly I'd rather not do it again, I want to move on. You win some, you lose some, as the saying goes. I'm fairly confident about second year, in my last (and only!) exam I got 70%, and it looks like there's more exams in second year and less godawful presentations (I didn't hate them before, but I do now!).

You need to ask your personal tutor or year leader. Don’t rely on common sense it doesn’t always yield the correct answers.

Tutor has been emailed. No reply as of yet, but I wouldn't expect a quick reply in the holidays.

I have got 120 credits, if that means anything.
