I graduated with a 2:1 LLB degree from the University of Manchester last year, and I have been accepted to the Legal Practice Course and Master of Laws - starting September this year in the Chester campus. I've recently downloaded my Academic Transcript because I understand that I need proof of my module results, and I understand that each core module must be passed to gain a qualifying law degree.
BUT I noticed that a module that I initially failed in my first year (Contract Law) doesn't show the resit mark, but shows the mark that I first obtained with a C attached to it: '33C'. When I resat, I managed to get a mark of 60-something, and I understand that the C means compensated... but surely it's not compensated if I actually passed it albeit after a resit??
I'm worried that my degree isn't qualifying because of this compensation, and that I won't be accepted on induction day - despite me passing in the 2:1 boundary once I resat. I also know that the SRA do not accept compensated marks, however I passed the exam when I resat, so I'm confused whether my place will be cancelled or not on the LPC. I have asked the university whether there is any way I can receive proof of the 60 something mark, but seeing as it's the weekend I know that I won't get a reply until Monday and I'm freaking out!!
I would just like to make sure that my results are acceptable. I thought that universities normally cap your resit mark at 40 so I'm not sure why it shows 33C. Anyone have any ideas? Helpppp!
Sorry if this is confusing, it's difficult to explain but I hope it's come across OK :|
Ask the Admissions Team anything!
