    What would I enter if the application form asks "How many UCAS points did you achieve in your first sitting?" If I haven't completed my A levels yet?

    Erm, there isn't one, the 'Current University Education' page asks for things like

    Current University
    Degree Subject

    Etc

    Should I apply and what are my chances like please help answering some of my questions?

    1) My grades from sixth form are not outstanding, AACd (Maths, Econ, FMaths, CompSci) although I'm retaking CompSci AS and taking A2, though I should be predicted at least an A or A* in CompSci. Will this matter enough not to get to the test stage, though if I am predicted (AAA OR A*AA) having achived 2 of the A's already.

    2) I'm not in school anymore taking work exp currently so do they accept students on a gap year though I will have an ex teacher around to prove that I'm predicted an A or A* in CompSci.

    3) I'm applying to only target and semi-target unis in CompSci and Management.

    4) Is being an african-muslim from a state school although I don't get free school meals etc, classed as disadvantaged.
    I think disadvantaged is first gen uni entry and GCSE pass rate of less than 40%

    The webpage says:

    "Applicants should be completing their A-Levels (or equivalent UK qualification) in 2017, with a view to complete their University studies in 2020."

    Does this exclude me because I'm on a gap year (completed A Levels in June 2016)?

    No idea tbh, don't think there was an indication of it last year either.
