Do I have to re-do it and will I have to pay more because I will have to do an extra year?

You will have a chance to resit your failed modules again later in the year (usually around July time) or worst case scenario you might have to repeat the year. You will not have to pay anything extra out of pocket but you will have an SFE loan for 4 years rather than 3.

So I will have to pay for 4 years?

Yup I believe so but post in the Ask SFE forum as they will be best suited to answer this.

Depends on the university. If it's Cambridge, and it's 99% of courses, then you get kicked out. If it's a normal university () then you usually get to resit failed module(s) in a resit period and, so long as you pass then, you can progress to the next year. If you've failed any of them badly, or failed a lot of them, you might be asked to repeat the year. In any case, your standard SFE entitlement is for the length of your course plus one year, and this gift year can be used, inter alia, for repeating a year due to academic failure.

Nothing, you just redo or move on.

You are entitled for 4 years of funding so that won't be a problem it depends on how much you fail and how you fail these are the most likley:1 is most common 4 is least common but does happen (I know someone it happened to).
1/ You'll be offered resits's or a make up assignment in all the elements you failed.
2/ Marks you got in a another unit can compensate a bad mark in another unit if you only failed by a little bit.
3/ If you have failed the year by a lot you might be able to resit the year
4/ You might be kicked out if you failed after all resits second chances and everything.
If you fail just like 1 unit after the resit you might have to retake it alongside your second year courses. also f you do get option 4 you will still get credit for everything you passed but it's quite hard to get option 4.
