    Hi there. I hope I am in the right category of this forum, if not I apologize in advance.
    I have a strange issue and if anybody can help will be appreciated. I just finish an HND of 2 years in June 2017, and they released my diploma now in September. In the mean time, i have applied for a top-up year in Computer Networks BSC(Hons) level 6. Of course, i have applied for tuition fees, but I just encounter a strange answer from SLC.
    They said to me I am not eligible for tuition fee as there is a gap between the previous years. The HND course I started in June 2015 which fall into the 2014/2015 academic year and as I earlier said I finish it in June 2017 which is into the 2015/2016 academic year, but my diploma was released in September(actually I was the only one in my group wich finished on the normal basis with all the exams taken on time). The top-up year I started in October 2017. Now the SLC told me is a gap between the years, but how that can be when the course started in October and I have finished the old one in June this year?
    Is there anything I can do about this?

    Well June 2017 is actually the 2016/17 academic year, not the 2015/16 one. So if you told SLC you finished the HND in 2015/16 that might be where the confusion arose.
