    If it's a foundation programme with direct progression you should be able to progress to your selected undergraduate programme upon successful completion of the foundation year which if I remember correctly is achieving %50 overall mark. You should be able to find subject specific requirements here: https://www.dur.ac.uk/foundation.centre/dpp/proglist/
    Hi, I noticed the mark barrier is 50% for the pass progression within the Foundation Year. What is the pass percentage within the three year degree? As I always assumed 40% was a pass, a low pass at that, but still a pass. Is it the same throughout the degree out of curiosity? Or is every University generally different in pass rates and percentages?

    I had applied on 21st November and received my offer on 18th January. They seem to have a reputation for taking their time with applications more so than other universities.

    Yes, according to their core regulations, a %40 GPA and at least %40 mark from all your modules is the cut off point for an undergraduate degree.
    You should be able to find more detailed information here:

    Hello,
    Do you mean your academic transcripts prior to your secondary education?
    When I received my offer it was unconditional, but I needed to send my GCSE certificates in. However, iv recently received an e-mail stating that home/EU students no longer need to send it prior academic achievements??

    Were you asked to send your GCSE certificates prior to receiving your unconditional offer? I suppose you wouldn't need to send in anything else since you've already been acknowledged as qualifying for your programme with an unconditional offer. Out of curiosity, what programme/degree is it?

    Well I was kind of in the same boat. I was doing my maths when I applied so I received a conditional offer. I have know idea when my offer will change to unconditional as i got my required grade a few days after receiving my offer. I have been told I just need to take my GCSE certificate in when I start my course now.

    I'm just really confused :/ why would it state that u needed certain GCSE grades to apply, if they are now saying that I don't have to send them in? Surly they need confirmation that I got the grades I stated in my application?
    Iv rung my college, who have sent out the e-mail and she said I didn't need to send them at all...

    My offer was unconditional - but I had to send in my gsce certificates. But now there saying I don't need to?
    I'm doing criminology with foundation
    Just confused as to why they now wouldn't need them? Surly they need to know I actually got the grades that I stated in my application?

    Sorry if this is slightly "off topic". I tried logging in this evening on ucas track & got suspended for "too many attempts" something along those lines. My primary concern is should I contact Durham to let them know about this issue? as on the ucas website they say it takes 24 hours for the account to be reactivated... I hope this will not affect my application

    Oh wow how many times do you log in to UCAS track in a day? I don't think it would have any effect on your application. Though you should bring it down a notch.

    Yeah me too, at least I know one other person's going to be in the same boat as me lol.

    I wouldn't worry about your GCSE's, if they've emailed you saying they don't need them, then they don't need them. Especially as you've now called to clarify. But if you're worried, you may as well take the certs with you when the year starts, just in case... I'm guessing a couple of pieces of paper wont make too much difference to a years worth of living supplies lol.

    Anyone going to the post app open day on the 18th?

    I think he/she means they tried logging in but got a password wrong or something, so the account freezes for security reasons... I don't know though, I'm just assuming there isn't such a thing as being locked out of the account because you logged in too much.
