FOI requests revealed that the low number of students receiving failure rates raises fears of a Grade inflation at Lancaster University.
So, can I graduate if I fail a module?
Before exploring what happens when a student fails a module, it is essential to answer the question “What is a module?” Well, all university study programs have modules that can be optional, compulsory or discovery. Each module has a credit value, and a student must complete the appropriate credits to advance in their program.
At Uni, a module refers to a group of courses that provide a specific level of understanding in a subject area. A regular undergraduate program can have four types of modules such as BSc, BA and BMSc. Basically, every subject of study in the university has modules. Failing college modules means:
What to do if you are at risk of failing a course
Before considering dropping or withdrawing a course, a student must work to get into the field. better positioned to succeed using the tools available on and off campus. These are the steps students should take as soon as they know their grade is at risk.
- Talk to the teacher The first stop is to ask the teacher for help. “If a student knows that she is failing, she should contact the professor immediately and request an appointment during office hours,” says Joseph Croskey, director of the Center for College Guidance Services at Clarion University in Pennsylvania. “If it’s at the beginning of the semester, the teacher can help the student plan a class for a passing grade at the end.” Once the student-teacher relationship is established and a plan is in place, students need to find out what additional resources are available. Professors can make specific recommendations, and most campuses have many academic resources to help struggling students.
- Know what you need to do to be successful Ask your teacher to help you understand the class grading system. Get a detailed picture of how to pass upcoming assignments or grades you need to pass. For example, you may need to get a B on each of the next few tests to increase your GPA.
- Using student services on campus “There are often success centers that provide services,” says Kathleen Ellwood, a consultant, trainer and adviser with Clarion University’s Leadership & Innovation Connections group. “Students may have a documented learning disability and can seek help from the Disability Services office for help with test problems. If other issues are stressing them out and preventing them from learning, they can seek out appropriate counseling resources.”
- Talk to your academic advisor or academic coach Counselors can help you take action on your own behalf and advocate for you They are there to help students plan a long-term path to achieve their academic goals and can deal with obstacles along the way.
Some schools also offer academic coaches who help students with strategies, study skills, time management and other skills,” Ellwood explains.
- Finding a Tutor Students can find tutors on campus through from Student Resource Centers, online tutors and through academic support centers No matter the subject, there is someone who can help you Especially for revision or domains If it is related to processes like math or science, it is important to have a someone to monitor your study habits and comprehension of the material
- Connect with other students If the course is difficult for you, chances are other students will be too Croskey recommends taking notes and discussing them with other students every day days in an informal peer-to-peer study group “Test yourself on the hardware every day. Study in a relaxed environment.” lajado,” says Croskey. Sometimes the most important thing to understand something is to hear a different explanation. Talk to as many people as you can about the issue.
- online “Internet resources like Khan Academy, or even YouTube, can help with a lot of things,” says Croskey. Watch videos, do more research, get summaries. with the right solution systems. genuine interest in the topic.Think about the class and the workload in a positive way.If you can make it interesting, the information is more likely to stick and the learning becomes a better experience, says Croskey.topic and what the teacher is presenting. Your ability to come back and focus forward with the right attitude,” he says.
- Get extra credit, if possible Your teacher may give you an assignment that you can do to improve your grade, or at least give you some extra study material Take advantage of these opportunities as it will show a desire to succeed and finish the course on a high note
If you fail a core subject ipal required for other subjects, it will be automatically removed from all future dependent subjects (if acceptable). For example, if you do not pass ABC101 in semester 1, you will be automatically dropped from ABC102 in semester 2. To complete your course, you must attempt to pass the failed core subject and then complete all dependent subjects. The failed subject will appear in your syllabus (in StudentOnLine) with a “planned” status to encourage you to re-enroll there at the next available opportunity. Students studying at partner institutions that do not use StudentOnLine must re-register with their institution.
If you fail an elective subject, you must pass another subject to recover the credits. You can make the same selection again, or you can choose a different selection (worth the same number of credit points).
