having a nightmare getting transcripts

  1. I requested my transcripts about 3 weeks ago from my uni, when i called they only had years 3 and 4 in the examintions office but said they would get the 1st 2 years from the nursing department and they said they would DHL them out to me in a week, no cost. Easy i thought!

    3 weeks on no transcripts, and I cannot get hold of anyone to find out whats happening. I have been calling daily for over a week and all i get is an answerphone and no-one is calling me back.

    3 weeks into the long process and already I'm hitting stumbling blocks, not a good start

    Check with NMC as I am sure they can do something as some people have had problems getting transcripts when nursing schools closed down. Can you not pop into uni to get someone?

    My dear, delightful uni took 14 WEEKS!!!! Then they got something wrong & had to do them again! I went in person to collect the amended copies, got them to sign, seal & stamp them in front of me then took them away & Fed-Exed them myself. They charged 30 for that & then another 30 when I wanted them sent to CGFNS fro the VisaScreen - they took 3 weeks to do that & all they had to do was bring them up on the computer & press "print" that time around!!

    The final thing that got mine done was when I emailed the Dean, Deputy Dean, Head of Department & deputy HOD (all addresses available on the Uni websites) complaining about how long it was taking (I'd been told 2-4 weeks when I first enquired). Turned out someone wasn't doing their job - well there was a BIG surprise - I could have told them that!! Anyway - 3 days after my emails they were done - AMAZING!!

    my records were transferred from my no longer in existence nursing school by the way.

    Good luck & happy plaguing!!
