What is required for me to pass first year?

So I’ve seen like that my course overall has 120 credits (4 modules) and out of them I’ve achieved 90. I’ve gone back home early though as my mum has had surgery and I’ve had to help with issues surrounding this, such as filling in for her at work. I’ve been advised to apply for a deferral and I will do this but as I’m in a position where I will be really busy could anyone give me advice on if I ended up too busy to complete this last module will I be fine to pass on to next year? My course is health and well-being in society at DMU, i wasn’t sure which forum to post this under ;;;

Hi there @Nauticalshell I'm really sorry to hear about what yourself and your family are going through. I hope you're okay (as you can be). Apologies for the delay in response - maybe this will reach you in a timely manner:redface:

I would advise that, although a deferral may be best, considering that you have already completed the majority of the year I can understand that you would prefer to progress onto the next year. What may be best is to contact your Student Advice Centre for your Faculty as well as talk to your module leader or Academic Tutor about your options.:hmmmm: - that is, of course, if you haven't done this already!

You may wish to apply for an extension to your final module to allow yourself extra time to complete the workload and conclude the full year and all of the modules. This, and other support through Student Services (located on campus in Gateway House and online via bookings and contact number), may be best so as to avoid not concluding the module --- as this can lead to an Academic Failure, which happens if a module may be failed, and can affect your further studies but may be appealed.

Here are the links to contact for advice and support::call:

I hope this helps and best wishes to you all,
