Fail and Repeat
If you are unsuccessful at reassessment, you may be required to retake the whole module during the next academic year.  This is called a called fail and repeat.

If the Programme Assessment Board gives a decision of ‘Stay at Same Stage’ this means you cannot progress to the next stage of your programme, or graduate this year in the case of final year students.  Instead you will remain on the same stage of study and repeat (with attendance) any failed modules.  Your transcript will clearly indicate any modules you are required to repeat.  You may be required to change to part-time study depending on the number of modules you have to repeat.  This will be detailed on your transcript.


  • Previous marks will not be carried forward.  
  • Marks for individual elements and the overall module mark will be capped at the pass mark.
  • You may be allowed to take an alternative module.  This does not increase the total number of attempts permitted and capping will still apply.
  • One final reassessment will be allowed for students who fail a repeat attempt.  The Unless stated otherwise in your programme specific regulations, the marks for the module as a whole will be capped at 40%.
