    Hi Leicester have a new scoring system which I am confused about.

    I have achieved A levels of AAA and in the past the scoring system for people which achieved results already was an advantage.

    But on their new system if you have achieved A levels then,they give you the same gcse score whether you have an A or A* at gcse.

    This means for me personally who has 7A* 3A at gcse and 3A at A level I would have 2 less points than I would have if I had just completed my AS levels.

    The last few years it has been the opposite. Basically on the system they have listed if you have achieved your A levels then you would need 3A* at A2 to be competitive. I just think this is wrong. I have e-mailed them for clarification.

    Either they want to discourage gap year people applying or have made a mistake .
