When you failed did they ask you to retake or resit the year? A retake is where you have to do the course all over again and a resit is just the exam and no lectures.

It sounds to me like you should never have done a foundation course and gone to college instead.

Why did you fail? Were there any exceptional circumstances health or personal reasons?
What has the uni offered you? If they have offered a resit, just pay the small sum for the resit.
If its only a retake, then it looks like you have used up 2 years finance and your only chance is a compelling personal reasons claim.

Thank you for your answer! I have received an award letter, academic failure. I’ve failed a module, I was supposed to have an exam In may but the university didn’t send any emails no notification, everyone in my class failed to participate because of this , when I asked they said it’s my fault. I had the referral exam on the 25 August online , I’ve done everything. Initially I have received 40% and pass for the exam and after a day it was changed to6%. How is that possible it’s beneath my understanding. No one is answering my emails with proper answers. Not sure if it matters but in the period when I had the exam I was diagnosed with COVID and have a letter to state that but at this point I feel let down by the university and don’t know how to proceed . Should I try and make an appeal ? Would I have any chances?

I think you should make either an extenuating circumstances claim based on
Illness during the exam at which you can emphasise how badly you were suffering from cv19 at the time.

That may get you the opportunity to resit the exam.
The letter should be offocial confirmation from a GP or medical institution.
You should also seek clarification as to why you went from a pass to 6%.
