Hello, I have failed a test this year that makes up 30% of my grade. I think I will still pass the course overall but I think the test I failed may ruin my grade. does anyone know if a university will let me resit it?

If you achieve a passing mark (40 or over), you won't get the opportunity to resit. If you get 39 or less, then you would be offered a capped resit, so your maximum mark can only be 40.

It might also depend on whether your course requires you to pass every assessment, or whether you just need a passing average mark for the module overall.

i doubt it if you pass the course if your close to the grade boundary like 1-2% off they might might give a pass refer meaning you have your degree grade say a 3rd for instance (and that is guaranteed and safe) but if you do a resit and pass you'll be able to get a 2:2 of 2:1 first whatever the next grade up is I know for a fact that sometimes happens.
