    So, I enrolled to college after (finally) deciding what direction I want to go in, and I have completed the first year, I was originally planing on doing the second year, to give me the full 18 credits. Given the fact that the college is completely useless, and they treat me like I am 16, considering I'm 20, it is a wee bit patronising and I have decided that I would rather just try and get into University this year.

    Considering that the college have spent the entire year lying about pretty much everything to do with the admin side of the course, as well as varying excuses for specific issues I had with the college, I have no faith in them.

    I have definitely completed all of the requirements for the 90 credit diploma, both of the mandatory units and enough of the optional units to pass. I was wondering if the college have any justified ground to refuse to award me the certificate, given that the 90 credit is literally half the 180.

    Secondly, I resubmitted some work that would bump up my grade, they told me it would be marked, but I never received any grades for it, I emailed Student Services and they haven't got back to me yet - is there anything I can do to get the work marked, since the tutors are all now on holiday?

    I dont think they can refuse to apply for an exit award when there's no reason not to, i doubt you ll get the resubmitted work marked at this point
