Default IQA Level 6 :(

Hi,

I received my IQA result today with Level 6 (360 credits) and with Unspecified Outcome, I have 3 Years Bachelor Degree in Computer Science and 70 % to 80% subjects match to NZ universities. Is there any hope if i can apply for reassessment to in increase in IQA level and Outcome or Is this end of NZ Dream.

Regards
Usman Ghani

I don't think a reassessment will bring about another result. what level was you hoping or needing to get?

from reading the site the credit amount (360) is all you can be granted as it was, as you stated, a three year course and you get 120 credit for each year. not sure if the length of course relates to the Level number 6 (?)

I don't think the length of time necessarily determines the level. A 'normal' UK bachelors degree takes 3 years and is a level 7.
My UK bachelors is level 7 and took 5 years fulltime to complete, as are medical degrees.

Generally the assessment looks at what the syllabus contains and looks at what it would be equivalent to in NZ.
I don't know whether appealing against the level is likely to be of any use. I have a feeling someone posted about doing this previously, I will try and find it
