I am international student, I am studying in one of the universities that require AAB (don't wanna say which one).
However, since I did not take A-levels, the university gave me an offer to meet, according to my national diploma.
I received overall 74% (the offer was 70%) - that would mean that it would be AAB, which would give 340 UCAS points.
HOWEVER, some universities gave me higher offers (eg. 80%), but they also required AAB...
How do I approach this in my CV/application ? Is it okay to write that I had scored 340 UCAS points or not ?
I am worries that when firms will see % they'll think in terms of A-levels and they'll think that my results are too low
I think I'd make it clear on the CV that you don't actually have A Levels, but what you do have is equivalent to about 340 UCAS points which is the same as AAB.
Considering you actually will have a degree, they shouldn't be overly concerned with the A Levels.
Yes, that's what I thought I'd put, the problem is that AAB = 70% overall, was calculated by my university and that's their offer I accepted; However, other universities thought that 80% is AAB... If I write that it's 340 points, which is AAB, I am worries that firm will ask me where did I get these information from & they'll think it's not reliable and I am going a bit too fair on my interpretation...
