    Sorry, can you elaborate? What do you mean by "city and guilds"?

    Well, City & Guilds courses aren't listed anywhere on the UCAS Tariff, so I'm assuming they don't have a points value. That said, lots of institutions say they'll count a level 3 C&G qualification as equivalent to 2 A levels.

    Nope. Unless you're applying for a course that is directly associated with the City & Guilds you have.

    I did Television and Video production, as well as Radio & Journalism, with 2 other A Levels, which was easily the equivalent of 6 A Levels and they count for jack unless you apply for media courses at uni (Let’s be honest, anybody can get onto a media course. I know degree graduates who’ve got less production skills than me).

    This may be a bit late now, but you can put City & Guilds qualifications on UCAS Apply under qualifications -> Vocational ->City and Guilds (not NVQs)

    For NVQs these are under qualifications -> Occupational -> NVQ

    I have an NCFE level 2 in computer hardware, don't know where to put it tho, as NCFE not under any of the boards they've listed. May have to put in the Other section.
