My studies are coming to a close (sort of).
However, the institute I am studying through has let me down horribly.
The course I'm doing requires 13 subjects to the end of your equivalent degree (NQF7) and then an additional 4 for the Board examinations (NQF8). I have chosen not to do Board, but rather to do an advanced Tax Certificate when I finish third year. I have one exam left before I finish third year.
The institute I'm studying through has informed me that I am required to do an additional subject if I wish to study through them. This is rather frustrating, since they will then expect me to have 14 subjects instead of 13! How does that even make any sense?
I have had to remove myself from this institute (which I held in such high regard) and return to the one I left.
I am gutted.
And angry and frustrated and just generally p'd off!
Not only because, contrary to the course I'm studying and the governing body that oversee's the course, this institute wants me to write another exam that doesn't fall part of my elective course modules, but also because its now going to cost me an additional R1900 to complete level three, because I have to transfer my module credits back to the governing body I left in the first place.
I would say it's not fair, but at least I passed the two exams I as struggling with - I get to pass those percentages across to the governing body, which is a good thing.
Anyway... having returned to the old lot, I now have six months left.
Then I can apply for registration as an accounting officer & decide whether or not I want to continue studying.
My other option is to let it stand and just mosey on as I'm going and not do a fourth year.
I'm still thinking about it.
My priority is my family and I want to make the choice that best suits them.
