    No they dont count for ucas points. But they have weight on your ucas form. And also many univeristies have their own scoring tariff where they are taken into account.

    No, they don't count in terms of UCAS points, but they will be taken into consideration along with AS grades, predicted A2 grades, personal statement, reference, extra-curricular activities and possibly an interview.

    They're sometimes used as a means of differentiating between candidates predicted straight A's at A-level, so they do carry some weight.

    Nope. It's only AS/A-levels, AVCEs, Scottish qualifications, key skills, and CACHE.
