    I wasn't 100% where about to place this question, so if anyone could re-direct me to a place which would get more help I would really appreciate it!!

    Okay, so long story short I began a course last year (in August) for Computing. It was a course below the course I intended to do but when it was suggested I jumped at it. I met amazing people too. My lecturers all put me at the top of the class, with a couple of others. I became ill a few months after beginning and subsequently I could no longer attend. The course is still going on at the moment but I know it is too late to rejoin (it's been a few months).


    I'm tempted to email my tutors and explain how my illness stopped me from continuing and ask what they would think about me going to apply for the next course.
    I want to ask their advice on it and see whether they think I'd be okay to apply for the following course, even though I didn't complete the initial course.

    If it helps; I initially applied for an HNC Course but I was told I didn't have enough experience, so they placed me in an NQ.


    Anyone any idea how I could word this?
    Really appreciate it, thank you.

    I really don't have much of an idea but you can try these phrases, I guess. I'm not really sure how well you know your tutors.

    Hi [name],

    I was wondering if you could give me some advice on the [name of course], because I'm not sure whether it's the best option for me or not.



    Try something along those lines and just go with the flow after that, don't overthink it.
    Hope I helped

    If you gained enough credits in the appropriate grade then you can apply for the HNC.

    iirc NQ is grade 6? and HNC is grade 7?

    Check your certificate you got when leaving with the units you have completed. IF you have enough book an app and get applying.

    I cannot remember how many you need, that is something to speak with your college about.

    Edit: I know i didn't answer the question, but every little helps
