Missed an exam, what to do??? Watch
But it was for a GCSE module so... for your case, it might work?
ok so basically i am in my first year at uni and have scewed around alot, only been to a few lectures some modules never even been to. it hasnt helped that i have never studied this subject before. anway i missed an exam thats worth 50% anyone know what i should do? im ready to get off my ass and work now and will be going to all my lectures. any advice would be amazing. thanks.
Step 2: highlighted in bold.
maybe you will be able to get 40%....
If you work your ass off you might pass.
I would try to talk to your tutor about it or if you have a chance of a summer resit, I would pay and do it.
But another question you should ask yourself is you say you going to work hard but do you want to work and catch up on a whole semesters' worth plus more on a subject you've never studied before? It's probably not uncommon for your situation to happen to other people but if you missed almost a whole semester and an exam, it's usually a sign to maybe quit uni altogether or redo the year.
b) If you fail a module you have to resit in the summer in order to progress, some people on my course did a complete resit in the summer, and have now progressed, so it's possible. Ill also say make sure you attend this term.
I presume you won't know to much about the subject so the fact you have missed so much will make it nearly impossible for you to pass. If by some miaracle you do pass you will still lack basic knowledge others will possess.
Speak to your programme leader. It will be best to have your reasons and excuses prepared. Don't simply say you couldn't be bothered because they will be unsympathetic. Tell them you struggled to adjust to university life or something along those lines.
I honestly think resitting would be your best option. I doubt you will know to many of your coursemates either so it presents opportunities to get to know them next year.
Don't let this situation occur again! Work hard and attend!
If you haven't studied the subject before, then the first year is more important for you than it is for most. The first year will give you the basic neccessities that you will need to know. You will have missed vast amounts of this.
I think the importance of first year is overlooked far too often - just because it doesn't play a direct part in your final result.
