So basically I got two firsts, a 2:2 and a 2:1 for 4/5 of my modules and my last one I got a fail simply because it is my weakest unit and I was definitely not passing it, I decided not to go to my second attempt assessment due to how it was meant to be done (supervised assessment) which I knew I’d fail so I’ve spoke to a few of my friends and they’ve told me I can transfer to another uni in my hometown of London and continue my course and start my second year there. I’m just wondering is this true and how can I go about it.

In short - wondering if I can do a transfer and continue my second year at another uni even though I failed one module in my first year.

To get a degree you need 360 credits - 120 from each year. If you transfer then you’ll need to restart from year 1 as you don’t have enough credits to enter second year.

So it’s impossible to start a second year, I’d have to start first year again?

Yes

If you remain on a course and take up resit opportunities then some universities will compensate credit - basically waive the requirement for a full 120 credits to progress/get an award. But that's something that is dependent on university regulations and the decision of an exam board. No university will compensate credit for another university's first year.

I am in a similar situation
I didn't fail however....basically there were 6 modules for my first year of my law degree. I missed one of the exams because I had an operation close to exam time and couldn't catch up with everything due to the time I missed recovering. My uni accepted my concession application. The resit however is on Monday but I won't be able to sit the exam as I am away for my sisters wedding.

Like I said I passed all the other 5 modules and got 3 firsts, one 2:1 and one 2:2 for the 5 modules I sat.
I really don't want to re-do the year because of that one module that I know I will pass but I really want to transfer to a better uni. The uni I am looking to transfer to is SOAS in London.
