I'm just hoping for some advice in a recent situation i've experienced. I applied in january for BSc (Hons) Interactive Multimedia Design at University of Ulster, Jordanstown; I was given a conditional offer stating that if I achieved a distinction in my current course (HNC Interactive Media) along with GCSE maths at grade C (which I re-sat in June).
I collected my HNC certificate yesterday, and unfortunately, I only achieved an over all merit. You can imagine how gutted I was, but today im in a much more positive mood and just trying to think what options I have available to me. Obviously since the results haven't been sent to the university by UCAS yet, I haven't actually been told for sure I'm not getting on, but im just planning for the worst.
I have just found a Foundation Degree in iMedia with the Belfast Met, which then qualifies you to complete the BSc Hons IMD with a further 2 years study. This seems like a good option.
The only thing is, for their entry requirements, as usual its 5 GCSE's with maths and english at grade C, as well as 280 UCAS points.
Here lies the problem - I have no idea how many UCAS points I have. I have a BTEC National Diploma in IT Practitioners from a LONG time ago at grade PPP, and the recent BTEC Level 4 HNC Interactive Media at a merit. Does anyone know how many points this is worth?
Obviously i'm hoping that somehow I will get onto IMD the standard route as my overall grades in the course were 3 merits, 1 pass and 4 distinctions, but if that falls through id just like to have a sturdy backup plan as i am absolutely determined to do this degree, if not this year by this route, then next year.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
