Passing Part I is a necessary prerequisite for proceeding to Part II. All three subjects must be passed (even the subjects that you do not intend to study in Part II) before you can progress to Part II.
To progress to an English Major, students must achieve a minimum of 45% in ENGL 100. Students wishing to progress to English with Creative Writing must achieve a minimum of 45% for ENGL 100 and 40% in CREW 103. Students wishing to progress to English Literature, Creative Writing and Practice must achieve a minimum of 45% in both ENGL 100 and CREW 103.
You will have the right to resit at the end of August any subjects in which you’ve failed.
If you fail any of the following elements you may be asked to resit:
Creative Writing courses
If, however, you fail to participate in any or all of the examinations you can disqualify yourself from continuing at Lancaster. You will be expected to be in Lancaster to take your resit examinations on the days and times specified by the University in the resit examination timetable. You must take this into account when making your summer vacation plans. If you do not get the marks you need in the late summer resits or if you do not attend you have no automatic right to any further reassessment opportunity and sadly, may not be able to continue with your degree unless the Board of Examiners grants you an exceptional second resit opportunity as an external candidate the following June. This means you will have to suspend your registration for a year. It is very important therefore that you prepare properly for any resit examinations.
Remember: even if you do not wish to continue with a subject beyond the first year, you still have to pass the assessment.
