I've got a sucky GPA of 10.5 of of 16.

You need 11 to get onto an honours course.

Repeat second year or just continue into 3rd year for a designated, non-honours degree...?

I'm so torn. Thanks.

My advice, repeat it. It'll be annoying for a bit, but you'll be glad in a few years when you look back...

In terms of As and Bs and whatnot:

A - 16 pts
B- 14 pts
C - 12 pts
D - 10 pts (This is where I am. It's embarrassing.)
E - 8 pts

etc down to H then you get no points after that.

You think? Thanks for you're input.

My only concern is tuition fees. I think I might still beable to be funded for a repeat year cause I'm being treated for anxiety/depression/wowhes****edintheheadness.

...explain the Scottish GPA please, because in America, it only goes up to 4.6...I think...

4.6 It stops at 4.0, though some high schools (maybe unis?) give you up to 5.0 for advanced/honors courses.

No chance of an appeal? Could you not use third year to prove yourself or summat like, go ahead and do first year honours, ace it and continue back on track? :P
Otherwise repeat second year, you should be able to weasel out another year of funding

I asked my son he said nothing but he just asked me he wants a psyachatrist (spelling?) Because he heard voices calling out his name. What a freak.

If I were you, I would repeat it. But I'm not you, so you have to consider how important an honours degree is in comparison to a non-honours degree for you.

Of course it depends how important the honours course is to you


I study Maths. I love Maths. But I've not done much work the first two years which I am ashamed of. I used to be such a hard worker but I want to change.

I'd definitely repeat it, considering how hard it seems to be for graduates to get steady jobs these days you're gonna want the best degree you can get

my advice as a uni dropout would be to go to college and do whatever you can to do the best course in terms of career not just what you can get into with the best grades you can..especially now with high demand for courses and the student loans company being twats etc.

My advice is to repeat. In the long run you will be much better off.

Besides, while you will need to improve you will glide through the year having already done it once.
