    Email from course coordinator:

    Dear K----------,

    You will find the French Department’s policy on attendance in the Unit of Study outline on page 5 of your FRNC2622 booklet.

    Unfortunately, the result is definite and there is no way that you can pass the unit at this stage.

    Kind Regards,
    Demon Woman

    Key words in the email are "at this stage". Approach the dean, ask for special consideration, supplementary assessment, anything.

    It's not a dog move at all! When I was in 3rd year at Uni i was given a fail mark on a major assessment (I would of failed the course if I'd just accepted the fail mark on this assessment).

    So I made a time to see the lecturer, took the marking criteria and my assignment and agrued that I'd been given a 0/10 in one criteria when I had completed this criteria and so deserved at least a few extra marks. He agreed and I passed!

    I hope you can find a way to pass too!!!

    Go right to the top.

    I failed a unit in my last semester of my law degree (not surprising really it was tax and I never showed up to class) and the Dean let me add 500 words to a paper I had previously done for him in another class and he called it a summer unit. It cost me a further $2500 in HECS but who cares I passed then and was able to start the job I had already secured!

    Go to whomever you need to including student services who may be able to give you advice on what to ask for and how to ask it.

    Most universities will have something like a 'conceded pass' for people who are within 5 marks of passing (ie. between 45% and 49%). We have this at our university but the caveat is that you can only use a conceded pass ONCE in your undergraduate program. If you haven't received one before and you've got over 50 for your other subjects then it could be the best option for you.

    Since your lecturer seems unwilling to help, talk to the subject convenor. If that doesn't work, talk to your year level coordinator. It may even be an automatic thing depending on what processes your university has in place, so it could be worthwhile talking to administration. Also talk to your student services and/or student union rep if the university staff aren't helping you.

    Good luck!
