+What about resits?

You can resit any number of modules at Level 1 on one occasion only (in the August / September immediately after the first attempt). You can resit 60 credits at Level 2 (again in the August / September). The flow chart shows you how this works.  After that you can't resit at all.  This is because we expect you to learn, during Levels 1 and 2, how to manage your time across a range of topics and to apply yourself to subject areas which you may not find particularly easy. These expectations are reflected in our qualification descriptors.  If you pass a resit your mark is capped at 40% (a bare pass) so that you don't get any extra benefit from having had a 'second try'.
