  • If you fail at the first attempt, you can repeat the exam at the repeat sitting. This is called repeat by assessment or exam. Students who fail the exam on their first attempt are not required to retake the course. They only need to resit the exam.
  • Students that fail both at first attempt and first repeat sitting must repeat by attending classes in the following academic year. This is called repeat by attending.

Please note that students must know the repeat strategy information before requesting their visa renewal letter from the International Office. This letter must state the students' academic performance for the previous year and when you expect to complete each module. Please see below the article for information on how to request this letter and renew your student visa.
