    Hey

    Well this person i know failed her second year at Nottingham Trent-accounting and finance degree.

    The uni said that she could redo her second year 2008-09 but would be capped at just a pass 40%.

    Well, now she has failed 2 exams but cannot resit them. The uni has notified her after a decision with the assessment board stating that she needs to terminate studies and that they wont allow her to resit.

    Is there a chance she can appeal against this decision or won't her case be strong?

    If not, what do you think she should do now?

    This person has been affected by parents divorce and has had problems.


    Thanks

    I doubt she'd be able to appeal if she's already re-sat,did she tell the uni of her problems? I've failed my first year due to ill health/family stuff and in the process of sorting out suspending my studies etc but I doubt your friend would be able to do that if she has already done the required resits. best advice would be to speak to the uni again or try and see if she can get a transfer to a similar course at another uni,however I am no expert so my advice to your friend would be to speak to a tutor at uni or a student advisor of some sort

    No she didnt notify her uni of her problems this year. She redid her 2nd year and she would be capped at 40% for every module. but shes failed 2 now u see.

    Erm,

    The best thing she can do is ask the tutors, head of year studies and so on herself. It does sound like they have made a final decision though.

    She might've had a chance if she'd spoken to them about the problems then they could've taken it in to account and offered her support but as she never then I doubt they'll do anything. Like suggested your friend would be best off speaking to the head tutor etc to see what the options are.

    Failing the same year not once, but twice, suggests that someone probably shouldn't be at university, or at least not doing that particular degree at that time. How many chances do you want them to give her?
