omg ive got the same problem theres no option on ucas for this qualification !!!!!!
i got a distinction for
databases:design and use
creating sound using ICT
ICT Skills for businesses
creating a video
this so frustrating
I just put it under other, it didn't cause me any problems when I applied to unis, my friend did say there was something for it but I never found it, as long as it's there and you enter the full name of the qualification as well as your mark correctly then it shouldn't cause any problems. If you're concerned you could always ask a person at your school/college that deals with the UCAS apps to double check
I think it does actually count towards your UCAS points tariff. http://www.ucas.com/how-it-all-works.../OCR-Nationals If you look, it doesn't say anywhere that a certificate can't be used! But look on the related documents to see if your subject is included. I personally got a distinction in Sport, which is worth a lovely 120 points!
If you are having issues putting in an OCR National First Award into UCAS qualifications, add a new qualification and instead of the list provided look above it and type it in the box, ie I typed OCR National First Award and it came up, once selected it came up with I think it was 4 courses... I did ICT, then you select the level.
Yes, I am trying to complete it now, it seems endlessly difficult - there are three topics - two to do a short course? I am doing unit 1 now and I have done units 23 & 4. Boring as hell - what school do you go to - I would like to compare marking because I did 12 pages on one review and I only got a pass. 67 slides of my powerpoint and merit... Awful course!!
