    Hi LouboutinLove. I did find that already but still not completely sure, is there a difference between a National First Certificate and a National Certificate?

    I don't believe they do, as level 2 are supposed to be the equivalent of gcse.
    Level 3's are the ones that count as ucas points.
    Also uni's in most cases apart from a few and certain courses, will generally give you a conditional based on a certain amount of qualifications.
