If you need to undertake reassessment this will be offered in the following Academic Year, you will not be able to progress to your next year of study until you have successfully completed your reassessment and have met the requirements to progress.
If you have attempted reassessment in your failed modules, you can be considered for carrying or trailing the reassessment. This is only permitted where you have failed up to 30 non-core credits, which includes any previously carried failed credits. This means if you previously carried 30 credits, you would not be able to trail or carry any credits in future years, or if you previously carried 15 credits, you could only be considered for carrying or trailing a maximum of 15 non-core credits.
Carrying credits means progressing to your next year without undertaking any further reassessment in your failed credits. The fail will remain on your Higher Education Achievement Report and you will not be offered any further opportunities for reassessment in these failed modules in the future. You can only fail a maximum of 30 non-core credits across your whole honours degree to still be eligible for the award.
Trailing reassessment means progressing to your next year and having another reassessment attempt, I.e., resubmitting coursework or undertaken a resit examination, to recover the fail in the trailed module.
