I've recently sat my exam and haven't had my results yet but I've got a feeling I may possibly get a C, which is still a pass but an A or a B result is required to progress onto the following HND course.

If I where to get the C how would I go about resitting the exam again? To get a resit you need to fail the exam completely which I'm certain I haven't done.

If you go by the official SQA rules. You are allowed to resit and attempt to better your grade. Even if you have a C. Challenge your college on this one. colleges keep this rule hidden to reduce marking

Extract from the Graded Unit. Specification for COMPUTING. .covers Software development...networking...computer science....or technical support... year 1 HNC or HND year 1..."Any candidate who has failed their Higher National Examination-based Graded Unit or
wishes to upgrade their award must be given a re-assessment opportunity, or in exceptional
circumstances, two re-assessment opportunities. This must be done by using a substantially
different examination.
The final grading given must reflect the quality of the candidate’s evidence at the time of the
completion of the graded unit. Candidates must be awarded the highest grade achieved,
whether through first sitting or through any re-assessment."- page 3.
