    Hi,

    I just wanted to know what would be the likely outcome if I got 330 credit lets say out of 360 credits needed for a BA Hons degree? I am aware that 300 credits is just an ordinary degree. But in this hypothesis what would happen if the credits were in the medium range?

    Any guidance will be much appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Generally anything less than 360 credits (but above 300) will result in an ordinary degree.

    You should check your course handbook and/or speak to your tutor or dept office/registry to check if there are any options available for the missing credits.

    Another option would be to look into LLB Top up courses. These are courses designed for people who already have an HND/DipHE/FdA or equivalent and will carry over your existing credits and let you sit the final year with your classification coming from your performance in that single year. If you haven't already resat a year or restarted then you should be able to get funding (although in this case it would be better to ask your current university to award you a DipHE rather than an ordinary degree). The universities that offer this route tend to be universities that offer foundation degrees and so you'll need to do your research to find out if the degree will get you into the sort of careers you're interested in.
