If you fail resit examinations, what options do you have? Basically, I read the Uni handbook/guidance for resits, etc. and what it says is completely different to what I've heard from people in my uni year (who have not done resits so may just be repeating 'rumours').

What are all the possible options? For example, one thing I've heard is that you resit the exams in January or something, but don't actually attend uni, and you have to fund the year yourself and loan company won't pay for loan. This was said by someone in my year who hasn't done resits, etc.

Thanks everyone

You ask yourself "is there really any point?", get a job, and trifle with such lofty notions no more; and/or return to your parents as an unmitigated failure. Whichever suits.

You shouldn't say things like that without knowing the circumstances, obviously private, personal issues which is why I came straight out with the question.

you should fill in a 'Mitigating Circumstances form' and you could get a deferrel even if you failed.

It depends what university you're at; you're better off reading the Handbook (as you've been doing) and finding the relevant person to contact regarding what happens after failing a resit than asking us.
