Hello,
Having at least the predicted grades and up can really help your chance of getting an unconditional.

Hi,
I'm not sure what this quiz is? It's probably going to be making sure you know the university's rules on referencing and plagiarism. Does that sound about right?

Yeah I really don't think it's anything to worry about it, it probably doesn't count, just read all your emails carefully and in time all will become clear! Erm this is hard to say! The degree is split between two departments (Lancaster Environment Centre & Biological Life Sciences). I only do BLS modules and they're assessed differently from LEC (it's very flexible so you can pick and chose which ones you want to do), so it depends what you pick! I'd say try hard on any end of module tests as they tend to be quite straightforward and can help bump up your grade! Multiple choice is harder than it seems.
