    Hello Everyone,
    Just want to seek your view(s) on general rules on resits.I am going to resit all modules.what are the options available-ignore the resit and repeat a year and will the uni allow that? or resit all and get my marks capped?.Worst-is it possible for the uni to suspend one as a result of resiting all modules or otherwise not attempting the resits and choose the option of repeating a year which I prefer?Really worried.Please,help advise.

    If it was me, I would repeat the year, have a fresh start (if they let you...). To be honest, if it's gone that badly I would have considered a different university/course too, and depending on the reasons for my lack of focus, maybe suspended university study altogether for a while until I was sure I was up for it. But that's just me.

    How bad actually is it? What unis are you wanting to apply to?

    Resitting a year is a big decision that you can't really just jump to without considering alternatives, and resitting every module will be very expensive (either for you or your school, or both). Unis don't tend to look kindly upon people who repeat a year without very exceptional circumstances but, depending on the university, they won't know if you resit or not (but they will see bad grades on your UCAS form). Either way, unis can't suspend you for resitting modules, unless it's explicitly stated in your offer from them.

    Think their already at Uni. We have modules at Uni as well.

    Anyhow, regardless of whether you repeat the year or do resits in summer your marks will be capped (normally at 40%). So I would say do the resits as it'll save you an additional years fees.

    Thank you guys for your responses.I have now submitted all the reassessment courseworks and I'm confident of getting back on track although all my marks would be capped to 40%.

    But despite all these,is there any possibility of making a 2:1 in the overall degree if I do well in the remaining modules(say making 2:1 and above henceforth in second semester 2nd year and my third year)?Any suggestions/advice would be much appreciated.

    That will depend on how your degree is weighted (check your course handbook to find out if you don't know already). If all three years are weighted equally, then getting 2.1s wouldn't be enough. If your second and third year count more towards your final grade than your first one, then it would be possible - but you'd have to average high to mid-range 2.1s in order to scrape a 2.1 overall, and that may or may not be a realistic scenario.:dontknow:

    Your first year generally doesn't count, so you just have to pass and the failing all modules will be swept under the carpet.

    Many thanks guys once again.
    I know I am really in for a very real fight to come out with a degree worth commendation.

    I am going to my second semester second year in september (with the first semester modules already capped to 40%) and I really want to make a 2:1 at least.What an uphill task indeed or what do you think,is that a possibilty?

    Any more suggestions on how to go about this would be highly appreciated.Thanks in anticipation.

    If your first year counts very little or nothing at all towards your overall degree classification, it's still possible for you to get a 2.1. Whether it's a realistic possibility is another matter, though, and only you - or possibly your tutors - can know the answer to that.

    Well, the obvious first step would be to try and figure out what went so terribly wrong the first time you sat those exams.
