"Point of entry. Leave this blank unless you have agreed with the university or college that they are willing to consider your application to start the course in Year 2 or 3 instead of Year 1. For example, if you are applying to start in Year 2, put 2 in the box."

"Point of entry: the applicant's year of entry to the course, for example, 2 refers to the second year of the course."

It means you start in the first year of the course Some courses have foundation years (year 0) which get you up to the standard required to take the same degree as someone who has done A-Levels. Also, some universities let you start at year 2 or year 3 if you've already done part of the course somewhere else and want to transfer. For these, the entry points would read 0, 2 or 3 respectively.

If it says "entry point 1", it means you'll start at the normal starting point

so it should say entry point 1 if you are applying for the a100 course and aren't doing foundation/starting in year 2 or 3 or anything?

Yep, if you're starting a degree having done a levels, IB or something similar, it will be entry point 1

no. just get the personal id from the "apply" screen when you log in to the apply section. Then put that number into track without the dashes and your normal username and password

Mine took maybe 10 hours until I could get on.
That is after my college had sent it off, and not after I clicked pay/send.

Its the id code on your ucas apply page with the ashes removed, then your username and password

^ Seconded. I left it blank when I was filling out my form online and it automatically shows as 'Entry point: 1' on UCAS Track. There is no such thing as 'Entry point: 0'.

Yeah, if you leave it blank it goes as entry point 1, but you can manually put in 0 or whatever and it'll go as that. On my widening access course I applied to, UCAS said to put entry point 0 cause it had a foundation year, so that's what I did and that's what it says. Hope that's all right :/

Edit: this thread just scared the crap out of me, so I just phoned UCAS and they said year 0 and year 1 basically mean the same thing - that you're gonna start from the beginning.

Anyone could tell me? Is it before you start an account or?

You do it when you select the course and university.
