    I was averaging 63 for my degree and had 2:2 conditional offers for my master's. i was recently told that id have to resubmit my dissertation in the summer due to an assessment irregularity. This also means that my graduation ceremony will only be in january or february. Now would i be able to start my masters in september if i can get my transcripts before that or would i have to wait till after my ceremony, defer for a year? There is a possiblity that i might now be getting a third class degree as my dissertation is 40 credits and it also gets capped at 40. Would this mean my master's offers being revoked eventhough im averaging a 2:1 barring just one module? If yes then would i be able to do some kind of foundation programme/degree so that i can satisfy the entry requirements for my master's?
    Sorry i know theres a lot f questions up there

    You can start the masters without graduating, just on the basis of your transcripts. What I'd be more worried about is your capped dissertation and what the problem was the first time. It's quite an important module and your masters uni may not see it as just another module. They may not be too happy about a third class degree either. I don't think there are foundation degrees you can do but you may want to look into doing postgrad diplomas or certificates.
