    Hi all

    I'm new to this forum so I'm sorry if it's in the wrong area.

    I have a conditional offer from University of Westminer and currently I'm doing a Access course.
    I just got emailed from my course instructor that I need to resubmit my last few assignments but apparently I will be capped at a pass - when all along she kept on saying you are not capped at a pass for resubmissions as long as you submit the first time within the deadline.
    I check OCNs rules but doesn't mention her makeshift rule.
    Now if this happens to be true, and I calculate my next assignments to be merits as required, I will be approximately a few short for the conditional offer I have. Will this be a problem?

    My next though was if I really knuckle down for my next assignments and aim to get at least 2 distinctions out of them and the rest merits which is still short because she would have passed the others - would they still be okay with it?

    Thanks

    Hi there. The first thing I'd say is don't worry too much at this stage, depending on available places we often can be flexible if your overall application is strong. The best thing to do would be to get in contact with your Admissions Tutor. Which course do you hold an offer for? I can message you the Tutor's contact details.

    Hi Rosie

    Thanks for your email..
    How does failing one of the courseworks effect my situation because apparently if you fail one you fail the whole course which doesn't really make sense because i still would have gotten my credits from other coursework in the other modules?

    IR and Politics is what i was looking into.

    Thanks a lot

    Hello,

    The best thing to do is have a word with the Admissions tutor. For Politics and IR this is Katherine Synnott, and her email address is [email protected].

    She'll be able to advise you on what we could accept.

    With regards failing one of the coursework assignments I'm afraid that decision will be down to your college. Perhaps you could appeal? I would speak to someone in the Registry at the college.

    I hope that helps!

    Rosie
