What happens if my overall grade for the year is 40% but I fail more than two modules

I am a second year at Queen Mary

One thirty credit module is at 39.40%
Another 30 credit module will likely end up 53%
A 15 credit module is 48%
Another 15 credit module is 53%
Another 15 credit module is 33%
And one module is unsat

Will they allow me to progress with that?

Using final grade = weight1*grade1+weight2*grade2+...

Weight = number of credits/total credits

I will presume the last unsat module is 15 credits (otherwise you're doing quite a bit for a second year)

Final grade for Year 2 = 30/120*39.4 + 30/120*53 + 15/120*48 + 15/120*53 + 15/120*33 + 15/120*0
= 39.85 (Whether QMUL will let you pass with just this would depend on their policy, but it's very unlikely.)

You will inevitably require a resit of your last module in order to get through the year, In which case, you would need 1.2% in your final module to pass the year (assuming the minimum pass mark is 40% overall). Of course 1.2% in the exam is appaling, so I would try to do better and score at least 40% (I believe resits are capped at 40%).

My questions are:

What subject are you doing?

Why are the grades this low?

At this point you just drop out, even if they do let you progress. And I am 100% serious about this.
