Sorry if this thread has been created before, but I am not sure what these 'Points' are on my GCSE results. I only got 3 full GCSE results, because the rest of the GCSE results can be redone. For these 3 subjects I got 'points' but I am not sure what they count towards. So here are my results for the three subjects:
ICT: A* - 29 points
RS: A - 26 points
Astronomy: A - 52 points
What on earth are these 'points' and why the hell did I get 52 points for Astronomy? Are they anything to do with UCAS?
I'm so glad I've found a discussion on this subject as I've been googleing it since my Daughter picked up her results earlier.She got Statistics A - 52 points and RS A - 26 points, the RS was only a 1 year short course so I'm assuming that is 1/2 a GCSE but she has As for other boards but no points for them - very confused!!

No I got A* in ICT, but I got 29 points.....
was it a short course?, on the first day of my sixth form they gave us this sheet to convert all our gcse's into an overall score to assess our ability and give us predictions. the scores your talking about sound similar

Yeah it was, now I come to think about it. SO it is half a GCSE, 58/2 = 29. But how come somebody got 52 for an A in stronomy and 52 for an A* in French?
Sorry, I made a mistake. On my sheet, I had a mistake. I got A* for French, but it's been written on because OCR had problems printing the grades, so I got 58 points for French, and 52 for Astronomy.... my bad..
I also had to have my *s written on my sheet for English Lit and English in OCR....although the points said i had 52, which in OCR French was an A, i got 58 in Latin which was A* .... i'm hoping they've printed them correctly?!?!?!?! please help if anyone knows what this means, i'm hoping they've been marked right!!
