    So I finished my A levels last year and got 80 UCAS points more than required for the course (motorcycle engineering), got an unconditional offer for the foundation course and had an interview for the course without the foundation year.
    The day after the interview I got a conditional offer based on a level three IMI diploma in motorcycle maintenance-this was not in the entry requirements and would take two years to complete (level two is required first).
    Don't see how this works?
    Rang them up and the dude is away so I have to ring back on monday, she said he may have overlooked something though.

    It's probably just an error on their part.

    Yeah I hope its an error, but I wasn't very impressed by them anyway, the interviewer was 15 minutes late, had to force a handshake out of him, interview was in his back room office with him swinging on his chair, process took 4 times the length I was told and was late for a train, interviewer read his questions off a list on his computer, aptitude test was in a class of noisy student rabble.

    Found out I can get on Nottingham's foundation course anyway so who needs Derby

    Sometimes they do this kind of thing to test you to see what kind of a person you are by how you react.




    Or they might not be very organised.

    :hugs: hope it all gets sorted.
