Failed a part of my uni module. HELPWatch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
I studied and prepared myself 3 weeks in advance for my business statistics exam. I am a first-year student. The pass rate for this exam was 40/100 and i got 24/100. I have never been more upset and disappointed! I went to all the lectures and seminars and felt so prepared. This exam was 50% of my whole module. Now I'm going to be put into groups depending on what grade you got. I have never studied so hard and still failed an exam this badly. I don't know what to do anymore.
Usually lecturers and course leaders are really good about it because they have a large amount of people failing. Remember university is a business, they want your money and they want to get you through your degree. They don't want you to fail and drop out and give them an awful review.
Go and speak to your lecturer or course leader. Explain what went wrong, how hard you worked and how much you want to be part of this course. Some courses will let you have an extension or a retake but capped at a certain amount.
If you are allowed a re-take and you fail a second time and you end up failing the year and having to leave, please remember there is no shame in failing or dropping out. Hundreds of people do it every year, sometimes university isn't for them. Sometimes it's too much of a step forward and they need to step back, try something else and then go back in a few years.
Maybe University isn't for you or you are just not at that level yet and that is okay, you won't be the only one.
Good luck and I hope you are successful
