Time limit for degree level includes study below degree level

Periods of study for a qualification below degree level, are capable of being counted as time spent studying at degree level for the purpose of paragraph 245ZX(ha), if the period of study is taught at degree level, and when the qualification itself is added to other periods of study, resulting in the award of a degree.

At first glance an apparently liberal decision from Mr Chaukley. But in this context the study being degree level is a Bad Thing.
