    Use the following conversion table to help:
    A* = 8 points
    A = 7
    B=6
    C=5
    D=4
    E=3
    F=2
    G=1

    To work this out, you should add up how many subjects you achieved at each grade (e.g. if you achieved A's in Maths, English and Science than that would be 7x3=21). Once you have worked out your point score, you should divide it by the number of subjects taken e.g. 10 to get your average point score.

    At my school, it is recommend that you have:
    an APS of 5.8 or above to take 4 AS courses
    an APS of between 4.4 and 5.7 for 3 courses
    an APS of between 4 and 4.3 for 2 courses

    Hope this makes sense and helps.

    I only have to get 5 Cs and above to get into 6th form and do 4 AS subjects, but to do maths they want you to have an A or A* and to do a subject you have to already have a B in it. Does that mean i don't have to work out my point score + also, is it your predicted grades that they use or you actual grades when they are released in August?

    No-one has answered poor thinktank. It would appear that like you siad you can only get scoring systems out of 8. perrhaps you need to phone/get in touch with the school or college and ask them how they work it out. It might jsut be a typo on your form.
