    Hello! I'm a bit worried... I am studying Q69 in combined social sciences starting my first year in october 2014... However I saw on the OU website that B69 is only available until 31st December 2017... Will this affect me [I'm doing Q69 in the same subject but it says B69] as it says to complete the qualification you have to have completed the 360 credits by this time?? Please help!

    No B69 was the old degree it's been revamped by the replacement Q69 degree now with renewed pathways, modules etc. B degrees are what people who registered before 2012 (I think) are on, like me whereas people after that date are on Q style degrees and aren't time constrained like B degrees.
    So you don't have to worry, doesn't apply to you.

    No, the Q degrees are replacements for the older B degrees which are being withdrawn, so it won't affect you.
