    I had my results confirmed at the presentation day but I did not receive my official certificate or transcript. I might have got the wrong end of the stick because I thought that I was collecting my transcript and certificate. However, I was told that I have to wait until the 8th of August. I was also told that I should contact my tutor if for any reason I do not receive my certificate or transcript after the 8th of August.
    Same ive had my results confirmed but nothing was said about a transcript being sent out and we go back to the college in sept for our certificates. Im so glad i joined TSR otherwise i wouldnt have known any different!

    Trust me, the only reason you guys don't have your transcripts yet is because your tutors are being lazy. You have to pester them about it before they give it to you. They're lying if they tell you they can't. They just can't be bothered. Right up until the end of College, my teacher kept saying the transcripts weren't ready yet. So what I did was go into college even when it was supposed to closed because I knew he was going to be in, just to show that I wasn't going to rest until I had it. He still insisted that he didn't have it but this time he told me to remind him in a few days by email. I emailed him on that day and didn't get any response, so I got his office number from the receptionist and called him directly the next day. He sounded so surprised to hear it was me. I asked if I should come in to get it and he finally agreed to get it done by the end of the day and email it me.

    The teachers won't do it unless you're persistent because they know you can just wait for your certificates and use that instead.

    I still haven't had my official results yet, because the External Moderator postponed verification twice. The college have said they'll post our results/transcripts out this week, so I'm hoping that they have now been verified. I'm getting a bit twitchy now.

    Congratulations everyone, I just wanted to say I did the access course part time over 2 years and have just finished my first year at uni with a first. This is mainly due to what I gained from the access course and how much it prepared me for uni. I won't lie it is not easy at uni but having done the access course you will be a lot more prepared than most on your courses and it is one of the most rewarding things you will do.

    Good luck in your uni courses

    We were only allowed to do 60 credits, 45 credits at level 3 with 5 subjects each awarding 9 credits. I am not sure why so many people have around 60 credits at Distinction! It's a bit worrying.

    But anyway, I got 45 credits at Distinction and 15 at level 2.

    Well I hope things work out. Your certificates should be arriving soon anyway so there's no point worrying too much about the transcripts any more

    Nothing to be worried about if you got what you need for your university. 45 distinctions is good

    I found out we can pick our tranacripts up from college. But they have cocked them up with wrong results and missing ones aswell! If mine are the same then i am not going to be best pleased. Also nothing can be done about it until after the 18th when tutors are back from annual leave. I have a funny feeling mine are cocked up as swansea emailed me yesterday regarding missing results, and apparently agored cymru have sent our results to the uni!!! I am not a happy bunny

    I don't think anyone has mis-stated their credits. There are many colleges offering 60 level 3 credits on their Access courses and there are also many that only offer 45 and 15 at level 2. The maximum Universities will still ask for is 45 credits at level 3, so it doesn't really make much of a difference. The only time you'd usually need more than 45 level 3 credits at distinctions is for scholarships.

    Congrats on getting into Nottingham though. Great Uni

    Very sorry about that. It's unfortunate that most colleges that run these Access Courses are very unorganised. I couldn't even begin to tell you how many things went wrong just in the first few months of my Access Course.

    We had many problems with our course aswell but actually managed to finish well ahead of other groups! But the last thing i expect is for our results to be messed up! This is our future they are playing with. Im going to get mine tomorrow and pray they are ok but i doubt it as uni have already emailed about missing results.

    If you find out there's a problem then I'd suggest maybe calling up your examination board and query them about it instead of waiting until your tutors return. Your exam board would be the source of the problem anyway, so I think it's best to talk to them directly.

    If you haven't already done so, I think you should make sure to inform your uni of the muck up just to avoid any mishaps like them rejecting you because of what they thought were your final grades. Perhaps that's just my paranoia speaking though

    I will definetly be informing them. No its my paranoia aswell. This is a real big step for me and to think my colleges incapability of issuing the correct results could affect it worries me. Soon as ive picked them up i will be emailing them if there are any problems.

    Well I hope everything goes smoothly from here on. At least attending an institution that's actually organised and reliable is one of the things we can look forward to this next academic year.

    For Uni places you only need 45 level 3 credits. Our college offered additional units which meant for some people who needed 30+ Distinctions that they could complete extra credits to replace some that they maybe didn't do as well in. I took all the additional modules feted for the purposes of a scholarship so ended the course with 75 distinctions. My certificate will only show 45 but I'll also have a transcript with the certificate to show the additional modules taken and grades.

    Just had my conditional offer changed to unconditional. Even though I knew two months ago what my final grades were I still didn't believe I am actually starting Uni in September until I saw it in black and white!

    At my college, all credits were Level 3. I took an extra subject, so ended up with 66 credits at distinction, but could only put 60 on my certificate. I needed 50+ distinctions for the scholarship at my firm-choice university.

    I know that feeling. In fact, even though I've seen it confirmed on the UCAS website, I'm still waiting for the confirmation letter from Nottingham through the mail until I jump around all crazy like.
