Apparently he did a year here.

First exam in 12 hours. Can't find my exam sheet thing. Can I get a new one in the morning? Anyone know where and how much?

You don't need it. Make sure you bring your student ID though.

^best of luck!

How does this Summer/Christmas business work out in our grades, If I *just* fail a module exam after doing really well in its eqv. at Christmaswould I be alright?

One of these exams is looking nasty, the rest quite meh.

I think if it's a compulsory module you need 40% or you have to repeat it. Otherwise, as long as it's over 25% you can compensate with other modules.

BUT - and this is the complicated part - you CANNOT pass an exam from one period with marks from another.

Say you have one repeat exam in augest, and you get 35%. You can't pass it by compensation with marks from Christmas or summer. If you just miss passing by compensation (i.e. there aren't enough marks to go around) then you can't pass a christmas exam with a summer exam.

Hmm, I failed a module with 33% at Christmas, a compulsory one, but I'm fairly sure the Academic office told me I can pass by compensation if I got over 56% in another module, which I did.

Actually there's a bunch of info here.

Apparently there's a difference between a required module, which requires 40% without compensation, and a compulsory one

1 nescafe instant cappucino + 2 spoons of coffee + 1 spoon sugar + hot water and milk + old skool manson + some chocolate = jumpy legs. An hour ago I was half asleep.

I think it depends on the subject. I can't compensate over semesters in French but I can in Geography.

First exam out of the way. 4 more to go.
