Hi guys, so I'm basically about to finish my first semester and I haven't got the best grades. In one module I got 63% and in the other, I got 40%. I still need to receive the grade for my third module. A lot of people told me that the first year does not matter and I only need to get a pass is that true? I'm worried because I had high standards for my grades and I currently also have group works as my last assignments and my group are not good so we will most likely only target 40% in those assignments too.

Most unis don't count first year but some do. You need to check your degree regulations.

Most degrees don’t count your 1st year as long as you pass, some degrees have core competencies that you have to get 100% in though. Depends on your course have a look at your degree specification

Hi! WeWillAllSucceed

Most unis don't count your first year and all you have to do is pass, which is 40%. Do double check this though with your uni.
If you feel like you want to improve your assignment work then now is the best time. Go and speak to your tutor or academic support team. They can be really helpful and guide you in the right direction while offering some great tips.

I hope this helps!
Best wishes

yeah you just need to pass that 63% could compinsate your 3rd module if you just miss that 40% too so you'll probably be ok.
