    I have completed the first year twice and passed with 2:1 in the same subject at two different universities, I am currently halfway through my second year in the same subject. This would mean:

    Year 1 first time: I have 120 credits achieved.
    Year 1 second time: I have 120 credits achieved.
    Year 2: I have 120 credit achieved (when finished).

    This totals to 360 credits so far, does this mean that is enough credits to get a full degree and graduate without completing year 3 of a Bsc Hons degree? Apologies if this is a stupid question but I can find no direct answer to it, where a lot of degrees just say they require 360 credits to complete them.

    To be awarded a degree you will normally need a specific number of credits at Level 5 (year 2) or more likely at Level 6 (year 3).

    So no - you could ask your first university for a CertHE to recognise your credits there as a formal qualification - but you can't add 240 Level 4 credits to 120 Level 5 credits to get a BSc.

    It will be listed in their detailed regulations or programme specifications somewhere
