PLS HELPPPP resits at university of nottingham

so im a first year EEE (electrical and electronic engineering student ) at uni of nottingham. i messed up real bad this year im predicting i already have 3 resits for this year due to university regulations but also IET accreditation requirements, i might have a 4th resit too. ive passed the project module which needs to be retaken in attendance (i.e. resit the year), so im safe in terms of that, but i was wondering, is there a limit to how many retakes i can do (like in terms of the IET regulations and uni regulations) before they say nope just retake the year, my mental health has been terrible but i cant provide any EC evidence as ive never spoken to anyone abt it but im hopin to just stick it out and do my best in the resits. i just hope 4 resits isnt too many for them to make me then retake the year. ill do what it takes to resit and pass onto the next year i just dont wanna retake the entire year, any advice from people who know specifically abt this uni and course will be appreciated

According to the "Reassessment" section of their "Regulations from September 2020" page (which appears to be the latest version available):

"13. A student who, at the first attempt, has not satisfactorily completed a stage other than the final stage under Regulations 9-11 (of the Completion of a stage section above) has a right to one re-assessment in each failed module where this might enable a student to satisfy progression requirements."

The emphasis on the word "each" is mine. There is no indication of any limit.

thanks for your reply, however for EEE there are also IET requirements i was hoping they dont have a limit cos i have to meet both university progression requirements and IET
