I've emailed my tutor this question, and he forwarded it to someone else, and I'm still without an answer which I would like to know sooner the better. Chances are noone here will be able to give me a definite answer, but if you can try your best and give me an insight on to how it was like for you, then that would help. I would prefer to know how degrees are classified, my 1st year at uni doesn't count for anything. I'm currently in my second year and I am failing horrible at my statistics module (its a straight maths course). I am fine in every other module, but I have always struggled big time with statistics, there is literally no hope for me to do well in this particular module. I need to know if I can just not turn up for the exam, and focus on my other 3 module exams coming up at the end of this month, rather than putting in days into a module I won't scrape 30% in. I would rather get [70%, 70%, 70%, 0%] than [60%, 60%, 60%, 30%]. There is a total of 16 modules over 4 semesters that go towards my degree, in your experience do you need this module? At the end of my last year will they only pick a few of my best marks, potentially making this stats module pointless?
