    Yep, one measly exam! On my course you're not allowed two resits, else you get kicked out straight, but fail one then you get a chance to resit. Even then, fail anything twice and you're out (well, have to retake the year without honours etc)

    I'm in my second year. And I have two resits, one exam this year (Aug 26th) and one in April as I was told I'd be too busy to do it this year. Aswell as a piece of coursework for both of these modules. Luckily I havent been charged, unless I haven't been told yet

    Yes. Unless you had a good reason for not passing the first time, obviously, in which case fair enough.

    Would it need to be declared once you graduate?

    I have had a resit in first year, and now have two.

    I pretty sure you don't. I've never heard anyone mention it.

    Man, my resit is going to cost me 60 pounds! The uni has a set fee for everyone no matter how many exams you're sitting. :rolleyes:

    I don't think so, but it may show up on your transcript.

    Anyone know how much they change the re-sit paper as they never seem to put it up for people to see. Do you think this means that the paper will be similar to the paper that you failed on? Question wise I mean
