What year are you in?
Have they offered you any options?
Normally it is first sit- resit- retake= 3 times to sit the exam before withdraw.
Are you on a health related course?
Have you spoken to student advisor in SU?

You either need to speak to your tutor or department or registry . The answer will be in the rules for year progression. I am getting you failed year 2 exams, which is unfortunate and inconvenient compared to year 1. I am getting you failed the first sit and then resits. The rulers should be on the website or in your student handbook.Although its usual to offer a retake if you failed by so much then they can refuse to offer it.

If there was no third chance and you didnt have either any personal or health related issues on which to base an appeal it looks grim.
I dont agree there are plenty of ways out, but you need to read the rules.

I expect they will offer you a CertHe [corrected by Notoriety] for your first year.

You can then try for a transfer into some other unis second year degree, maybe OU and finish your degree that way.

Student Advice.
Have looked at the SU and it gives no indication of being closed. although and not convinced by the scope of its services whether they will help you.

Registry will know the rules better. I would contact them as well.

I expect they will offer you a PGCE for your first year.

CertHE or something. Not PGCE.

Not suggesting you don't know this; just for the benefit of the OP. Don't wanna confuse them even more.

Yep in my head thats what I typed. Too tired now. Why it suddenly becomes urgent at 2am is beyond me, same as people who start saying its urgent on Friday night when they have sat on it all week.

If you appeal it has to have some basis according to the appeal/ extenuating circumstances rules.

Hi there
I'm sorry to hear you've been excluded from your course. I've checked with the Registry Office and the regulations are clear, if students fail a core module twice in their 2nd year they cannot progress into Year 3. I know it sounds unfair but unless there are mitigating circumstances you cannot appeal the academic decision. Students are given the opportunity to resit after the first fail. This is a second chance to pass the module.

You will be awarded a Certificate of Higher Education for your 1st year of study.

Other alternatives is to apply for a different course or try another university.


Best wishes
