As per the University of Liverpool’s regulations, a student on a Masters programme who receives an end-of-module numerical grade of less than 50 (as confirmed by the Board of Examiners) must normally re-take the module within one year. This is explained in the Code of Practice on Assessment in section 9.

Likewise, a student on a Doctoral programme who receives an end-of-module numerical grade of less than 50 must re-sit the module.

In summary, a student fails a module if his or her end-of-module grade is less than 50. He or she is permitted one additional attempt to pass the module.  

Once the Board of Examiners has confirmed the failed grade, the student must re-sit the module within one year.
