What Happens If You Fail One Module At TUT?

What Happens If You Fail One Module At TUT? At Tshwane University of Technology (TUT), students are expected to perform to the best of their ability and complete all modules successfully. However, in the event that a student fails one module, it is important to understand the consequences and available options.

When a student fails a module, they will need to repeat the module in order to obtain credit for it. The module can be repeated in the next academic year or semester, depending on the course structure and availability. Students are also required to pay the full tuition fees for the module when repeating it.

Failing a module can have several implications for a student’s academic progress. It may delay their progress and extend the duration of their course. In addition, some modules may be prerequisites for other modules, so failing a prerequisite module may prevent a student from enrolling in subsequent modules.

It is important for students to take action and seek assistance if they are struggling with a module. TUT offers various support services, including tutoring, mentoring, and academic advising, to help students succeed academically. Students are encouraged to seek these services early on, before falling behind or failing a module.

In some cases, students may be eligible for supplementary exams or additional assessments. This allows them to make up for a failed module without having to repeat the entire module. However, supplementary exams are not always offered for every module, and eligibility requirements may vary.

It is important for students to keep in mind that failing a module is not the end of the world. It is a setback, but with effort and dedication, students can recover and succeed academically.
