If you did how have you entered it on your ucas form, there seems to be no heading which it fits under.

I think I did it. Is one half for 'business' and the other for 'video' or something? If so that was a horrible course!

My certificate says it's vocational so I would put it in the 'vocational GCSEs' and type in 'National First Award in ICT'.

No there were 3 units and there was a variety of options to choose from.

I sat the National Award for Business (2 GCSEs) and the UCAS lady told me to put it under 'other qualifications', if that helps.

found the OCR list as if by accident!

in the 'other qualifications not listed' section, look under 'O' again for other, and a list of OCR awards are there, including "OCR National Award" , and the one I was looking for too.

What does 3x Distinction equate to in terms of GCSE?

I just put it under other, it didn't cause me any problems when I applied to unis, my friend did say there was something for it but I never found it, as long as it's there and you enter the full name of the qualification as well as your mark correctly then it shouldn't cause any problems. If you're concerned you could always ask a person at your school/college that deals with the UCAS apps to double check

I did the same! Just choose 'OCR National Award' on UCAS and then you can choose which level and obviously ICT as your subject that should be fine :rolleyes:

you have to go to other qualification and click OCR nationals and then you enter the level and what grade you got. Good Luck

Wrong - thats a Distinction overall for the award which is equivalent to A*A at GCSE.

I think it does actually count towards your UCAS points tariff. http://www.ucas.com/how-it-all-works.../OCR-Nationals If you look, it doesn't say anywhere that a certificate can't be used! But look on the related documents to see if your subject is included. I personally got a distinction in Sport, which is worth a lovely 120 points!

If you are having issues putting in an OCR National First Award into UCAS qualifications, add a new qualification and instead of the list provided look above it and type it in the box, ie I typed OCR National First Award and it came up, once selected it came up with I think it was 4 courses... I did ICT, then you select the level.

Yes, I am trying to complete it now, it seems endlessly difficult - there are three topics - two to do a short course? I am doing unit 1 now and I have done units 23 & 4. Boring as hell - what school do you go to - I would like to compare marking because I did 12 pages on one review and I only got a pass. 67 slides of my powerpoint and merit... Awful course!!
