What is voluntary reassessment?

Why was my June exam mark reinstated after I took a resit in
You were originally given the chance to take a voluntary resit by the
June/July Board of Examiners. However, the mark you obtained in
September was lower than your original mark. As this was a
voluntary resit and not a compulsory resit, the Board agreed to
reinstate your June mark. If you are a second year student, you
should note that only a maximum of 30 credits can be regarded as a
voluntary resit. So if you had to take more than 30 credits'
worth of resits in September the Board could only reinstate a maximum
of 30 credits' worth of June marks.
