    And I'll show you my plan to get 480 UCAS points (Advanced Highers are equivalent to A2s)

    I did highers and Advanced highers and got about 800 points:p:

    4 advanced highers, 2 highers, 3 standard grades(when I did them there were less points for AHs, and some for credit standard grades), piano grade 6, and some core skills rubbish. Disappointingly STEP didn't give ucas points.

    I don't think you realise how much of a big headed person you are.

    I achieved AAA (360 UCAS) last year and was the first in the IT Department to A all 18 units in the course. Yet I don't go bragging about that. Or to other people in that matter.

    I wish everyone luck, and try your best. Thats all you can do. Not everyone will ace everything. I know I probably wont finish uni with a 1st. But we can all try can't we?

    Frankly if you include all that 800 isn't that impressive. Why did you do only 2 highers?
    I did 5 highers, but three of them I did to advanced higher, and you only count the highest level you did at any subject for points.
    Edit-Why only 480 points from AHs?

    4As at Advanced Higher = 480 points. If I included all the stuff you'd written I'd have 900 UCAS points... :/

    UCAS points mean **** all anyway, no degree that is worth the paper its written on will ask for UCAS points

    I'm not being funny right, but I had at least that amount of work/notes PER SUBJECT! Oh and by the way, you sound like a completely self indulgent, patronising idiot. Just so you know.

    That's so rude!

    Top universities usually ask for high grades for courses like psychology and lower grades for sciences ect. It doesn't mean psychology's harder or more respected, it's just more popular.
