    Questions regarding change of degree

    Hey. Currently doing a double degree.

    If I decide to drop one degree and substitute it for another, will the original degree's marks from courses completed specific to that degree still be counted into my WAM and my academic transcript? Or will they be removed?

    No. Only courses that count towards the degree that you are enrolled in will count towards your WAM.

    The redundant courses will still show and there will be a WAM listed on your online transcript at the time you switched degrees.

    But note, your final official transcript doesn't have your WAM written anywhere.
