I have recently been informed that in my country(Spain, which is adapting to the Bologne process), past failing grades will still show up on the transcript, along with the number of times you have taken the final exam. Is this detrimental for graduate school or work in the UK? Does your cumulative grade calculated upon graduating use only your final grades from when you passed the course or all of your past grades? The damage has already been done in my case, I have had to resit 4 final exams on 3 occasions, and 2 exams on two occasions, however my final grades so far are all good-average and have been improving steadily since my first year (7.03/10 as it stands, 2 more years left). So far I have never needed to retake any course as my university allows up to 3 examination attempts per year. How does my situation look as a prospective EU physics grad student/job market "newbie"?
