Failed first year twice Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
Hi I have failed first year twice as I didn't do well in my first year but got myself together this year but I was remanded and failed to get the two modules done because of this but now I am withdrawn from the course but I'm have appealed it but I'm wondering what the outcome will be of this?
I'm not sure this is a valid ground for appeal. You need to speak to Student Services at your University I think, but it sounds like the Board of Examiners have taken a decision.
Hi I have failed first year twice as I didn't do well in my first year but i got myself together and passed all my modules this year apart from one because i was remanded into prision and failed the module because I was in prison and couldn't get it done. Now im withdrawn from the course but I'm have appealed it but I'm wondering what the outcome will be?
Did you let them know at the time? how long were you on remand for?
If you were on remand does it now mean the proceedings have finished and you have been found not guilty?
You would have to look up the regulations on appeals that are particular to your university and see if you could construct an argument that was based on one of the accepted grounds.
What has the adviser at the SU said?
Impossible to say what the outcome will be because we arent fortune tellers and theres not enough information to assess the merits of your case.
They might take you back and they might not based on a conviction alone.
You will just have to wait and see.
It is a bit unfortunate for you failing twice as that is going to have implications for your student funding. I partly feel if I had failed year 1 twice then either uni or that course wasnt for me. SFE may not fund another first year. they may be a lot more sympathetic if you were found not guilty.
Best of luck and hope it goes well!
