1. 'This offer is subject to you obtaining a minimum of 280 UCAS Tariff points from a combination of A Level(s) and BTEC qualification(s).'
i'm not to sure what this means but im guessing it's 3 AS/A2 grades that make up the points of 280? I am studying health and social care diploma A2 and media studies AS. Thanks.
2. So you need to get 280 UCAS points in total

D*D* = 280
D*D = 260
DD = 240
DM = 200
MM = 160
MP = 120
PP = 80

A = 60
B = 50
C = 40
D = 30
E = 20

Hope this helps

For A2, the AS points are doubled (ie an A at A2=120,(A*=140 but doesn't have an equivalent AS grade))

Yeah I know, OP said they were just doing AS though

I know, I just figured that if someone else looks at the thread for the same question, they may not know I don't know why I replied to yours and not to OPs, but late night tsr-ing results in odd outcomes 😂
