At my school (not a fourth tier by far) a good number of people get d's and have to take a first year class again. Quite a few of them did study hard but just did not do well on the exam. I think we have one of those schools that tries to raise the bar passage rate by flunking some out. After my first year, quite a few students left but I don't know if it was mostly grades or something else.
But for the most part, unless you are one of those people who study hard but test poorly you should be okay.
