College changing my degreeWatch
Is this a 'proper college' or, say, an online one? A Business Diploma is equivalent to 1 and 1/2 A levels, so colleges wouldn't normally allow you to sit Law as well, as they would struggle to timetable this due to the minimum Guided learning hours (you normally do 1 1/2 A levels in Year 1 and the other 1 1/2 in Year 2. Additionally, they can't work through assignments quicker, as they need to teach all of the knowledge requirements before setting an assignment. Once started, they cannot continue teaching and helping. They can mark them quicker and give feedback which may save some time, but this would be picked up by their Lead Standards verifier as part of the annual Pearson quality checks. Due to the COVID 19 situation, learners stopped completing work in March and teachers had to submit predicted grades for every learner. If your college submitted predicted grades for a learner where they had allowed this to happen, it is highly likely that this has been questioned by Pearson and as such, they may not award a certificate for two courses. This could be why they are now back tracking. Or, it could be that you - or they- misunderstood when you enrolled. What does your enrolment paperwork say?
