I've just finished my first year of college, I'm doing a level 3 extended diploma in business, i got an overall M for the first year, in a few units I achieved Distinctions.

I was wondering if it was possible to achive DMM/DDM after the second year after only getting an M in the first year?

If you did extended diploma (level 3) then I assume you had 9 units this year. Could you tell me what grade you got for each unit (P, M or D) and then I can calculate what grades you'd need to get next year to achieve at least DMM (or higher).

Overall, it's incredibly do-able for you to achieve DMM or DDM. In fact, i'd aim way higher because you're in a great position and I reckon you're fully capable of doing that

Good luck

You might be able to 3 of the units from the first year as only 6 from the 9 was sent to edexcel. So ask your teacher if they let you complete it to get higher grade.

Hi, I am also doing the same level 3 extended diploma in business and got the grade: '' Double grade distinction merit '' for my first year of the course. Could you also calculate what I'd need to achieve in my upcoming year to attain a final DDD grade? I did nine units and they consist of:

3 Distinctions, 3 merits and 3 passes

Many thanks

download the relevant Grade calculator from Pearson website. Put in your actual course and all the grades you have for current units, then have a play with next years units to see what grades you will need.

I have a problem. I got Pass in year 1 result. But I got 1 Distinction in Unit 2 Exam and 1 Distinction in Unit 8 coursework and 4Ps. I think I should get a merit overall so I have requested for a appeal.
