Hi.
I understand you graduated from a UK university. What university was that? I also understand you have an ordinary degree, BSc in Computer Science?

Also, did you get a pass degree because of law grades, or was it because you haven't completed enough coursework? (e.g some unis offer an ordinary degree for a sucessful "completion" of 300 credit points. After completion of another 60 points worth of courses, one can "upgrade" their degree to an Hons one). This is what I have done btw. I was offered a BSc degree in 2005 with 300 points accumulated, took a gap year in 2006, and in 2007 took two more courses (2x30 credits) and obtained a BSc (Hons) 2.1. I was now accepted for a MRes degree at the University of Sussex.

Was that due to ill-health. Just wondering?

User: VeryPoor - 27 January 2008 12:30

Icemanlias where did you graduate? Because passes mean different things in different countries. Like in China people only fail or pass.

User: VeryPoor - 27 January 2008 12:33

Oh if it was in the UK, I don't think you'll get accepted onto a diploma because that's almost on masters level. If someone gets 40% in all units apart from the dissertation on my MSc they get a diploma. If they get at least 50% and do the dissertation they get a masters.

Hi there. I received a pass degree in a bachelor's of general engineering from Warwick University. The course I enrolled on was already an honours degree but I only passed without honours. I had extenuating circumstances but I did not mention it to them earlier. Is there any way I can argue my case and redo this year or at least retry to get an honours without having to do the whole course again?
