Firstly, no I dont need help with my coursework ;)
Over the past 4 years I've been doing 2 HNC's on day release from work paid for out of my own pocket and a small allowance from work.
The second HNC I did was quite short because elements of the first HNC transferred across. This was ideal for me because it kept the cost down and meant a lot less work.
3 weeks ago I get my results and no HNC, just a list of units that I had passed. I contaced the college and they said they would look into it. Yesterday I get a letter saying I didnt get the HNC because I've not completed a double unit costing £170.
I've phoned the head of faculty and he's explained that it's a unit I've done before on my first HNC but you have to pay to get the unit transferred so effectivley I so not need to do any work but because I did not pay for it (I presumed there was no charge as with all the other units I transferred) I dont get a HNC. I was also told when I finished last year that everything was done and dusted as regards the HNC.
So basically it's a full price unit, no work required, no tutoring, no resources, but unless I pay the money, no qualification. I suspect something is wrong here, Why do I have to pay full price for a unit that is transferrable and if I do have to pay, why am I paying full price when no actual effort or cost is being incurred by the college?
I'm quite annoyed because I was supposed to be starting OU ths year and with this extra expense I'll have to shelve that til after christmas.
Any ideas here guys and gal's?
