Simply, I'm repeating because like the idiot I am I failed everything in Arts last year
Ovierview, originally doing Economics, Geography, History. Dropped History in January tho in place of just doing electives, so I'm doing Economics and Geography in Arts.
Anyway inn Semester 1 this year I was only registered for 25 credits(5 modules: Economics(Macro) Two History modules, a Geography and a new elective) I'm not sure where the other Geography resit disappeared to but that was all I was able to register for. Anyway I passed 3 and failed 2, one history and the geography module. That left me with 15 credits.
Currently Semester 2, with 30 credits to play for, I'm flying with good scores in midterms and will 100 per cent pass everything this semester, also got my 2 group assignments finished and handed up, for electives I failed last year. So this semester has been perfect more or less so far.
So that makes 45 credits obtained from this year(15 from First Semester plus 30 from Semester 2), what I need to know what will happen next year now that I've still fallen short?
UCD messed me around with geography, they didn't at any stage offer me any info on repeating the other Geog modules from Semester 2 last year, I think a module from last year is no longer running which is why I had to take up an elective in Semester 1. However there was no option for Geography repeats in Semester 2.
I HATE Geography basically, would I be able to just drop it, and pay the fee to take up another core module(for example French or Politics) and do it next September replacing Geography? Fee of doing this is irrelevant, all I care about is if it's possible.
Is there anyway I can complete first year by Semester 1 next Christmas, with the proposed new subject in mind? So basically I need 55 credits to progress to Second Stage right? Could I do 2 Politics First Year modules in Semester 1 next September which would give me the 10 credits I need to progress, in conjunction with stage 2 Economics and new Electives?
It's a mess but if any of you could help me in anyway I would be extremely grateful. This is playing on my mind, hence I'm up at half 5. I know I should go to programme office, and I will but I kinda wanna have an idea what the story is and I'm sure youse can help with first stages of this, then when I have better idea I'll ask programme office.
Thanks for reading, answer anything you can, any help much appreciated. Please don't be rude, I need encouragement to motivate me in this semester, with some positive feedback I'll start to feel more confident about where I'm going, at moment this is messing me around.
*SUMMARY of this is basically can I drop Geography for something else without having to repeat the failed modules?
Actually does anyone have an e-mail i could contact with this info? I still owe fees and am not getting my mum to pay for them until I have these issues resolved. If I drop out then I can get a fulltime job and pay the fees over time, but cant have my mum paying over 3 grand and then me dropping out in the summer
