I know I said that could be the case and to phone them but wasn't actually expecting that to happen. Hope it doesn't **** up your accommodation too much. How come it will take up to a week though? They should be able to make you unconditional fairly quickly.
Neither did I! She said probably within 2 days but it could take up to next Tuesday. Not sure why!

My son received F's on all three courses he took at college this year. His prelims were at C or D, but his NABS since the prelims were all very good - As and Bs, plus his 'folder work' (that is, essays etc) all had very good grades. Does the SQA accept NABS and assignments markings as part of the evidence? We are waiting to hear from Inverness College to see if he is on the appeals list.

Ah, that sucks! I've never heard of that happening before. But hey, at least you know you've met your conditions and you're off to uni once you get your results sorted.
I'm surprised it'll take as long as a week!

Sorry that it's so unfair, but don't let that get you down. It's still time to celebrate great results regardless! :woo:
Yeah I know, just my luck. It's just so frustrating really! Hopefully it won't take that long to fix..

NABs not so much since they're at the basic pass level and aren't actually graded. For his additional work, if it was done under exam conditions and the teacher has some sort of marking scheme then it could be taken into consideration but the prelims will be the core of the appeal. Hopefully he is successful in appealing, let us know how he does!

Fingers crossed. He is at a loss as to how he could have done so badly as he said he felt good about the exams, wrote pages and pages - it wasn't like he didn't answer the questions. :-/

That's a shame :sad: Not the end of the world though! Does he have plans for next year/what his next steps are?

If only there was some way you could adjust your course choice if you meet and exceed your offer for you to consider.
Congratulations! Absolutely fantastic grades.

Well, he was offered a conditional place on HNC computing, needs one grade C in only one higher. His SAAS and everything is all set up. I'm away to the Sabhal Mor Ostaig to finish my third year, so this course and the student loan was going to enable him to stay here and me go away. The level of bursary for taking highers here on Lewis will not be high enough to live on, so I hope he can find some work - which is not easy at the moment.

Hi, higher results have came at last - 2 a's and 3 b's so pretty happy, although my first choice is primary teaching at strathclyde uni. I know their minimum requirements are 3 as and a b for their new ba course, do you reckon there is a good chance of me getting a conditional for this course?
