2nd yeear

I failed my second year in university and am currently taking up my second year retake. I've been very apprehensive about what maximum grade I might be able to achieve having now failed a year and would like to know if anyone has been in a similar situation and what outcomes they experienced. Any advice is also welcome thanks.

Hi there

I don't know too much about retakes personally but would definitely advise you to talk to your tutor about it! I'm sure that they will be more than happy to help! As far as I know, if you do well in retakes, it shouldn't affect your final grade but for specific information, you should talk to someone at the university. I'm sorry that I can't help more.

All the best,
