What will happen if you fail a module?

If you are unsuccessful in passing a module, the Module Board of Examiners may permit a ‘Referral’ opportunity or make a recommendation to the Programme Board of Examiners to determine an outcome, often based upon the number of unsuccessful attempts to pass the module you may have made previously.

Possible outcomes are (statue codes):

  • FREFC / FREFE / (Fail – However a Referral opportunity is available). (Note the last letter C or E indicates Referral for either Coursework or Examination).
  • FREN (Fail, Re-Enrol). Typically indicating that you have been unsuccessful in passing the module but may re-enrol to make another attempt. (ie. Repeat the Module)
  • FNFA (Fail, No Further Attempts). Typically indicating that you have been unsuccessful in passing the module on too many occasions and may not now re-enrol on the module again.

Please Note:

Students with an OVERALL AVERAGE Module Grade below 20% will not be offered the opportunity for a referral and will be required to repeat the module the following year (if permitted).
