Hi I passed the above in the 1970 s and wish to know the following :-
Do old HNC s passed before 2010 still carry level 5 status .I had to pass ONC before doing HNC .The old HNC only did advanced subjects relying on the ONC knowledge .When the HND was introduced you only needed 1 pass A level to gain entry and that possibly could have been in any subject .Thus a student could have had no prior knowledge of the HND subject causing possibly the first year spent mostly doing onc/ond work . Perhaps that is why both carried equal status until approx. 12 years ago .
Finally my certificate only shows "passed" with no room for grading .Two friends of my from that era also have the same . Who holds the grade marks now for that period i.e. pre Pearson .One friend managed to get his grading at the time from the College but I did not bother and the College is of no help . Any comments and help would be appreciated
