I was using a ucas calculator the other day i found that if i got :
A Level: AAA
AS Level: A
I would still have only 400 UCAS points. I want to do dentistry and most of the requirements for this course's are AAB at A level and B in the other AS Level. Although the average unistats UCAS scores students have for this course range from 440-500.
How is this ? Do they all take more than 3 A levels ?
Also i take General studies will this add to my points ? Also is there any other ways i could get more UCAS points e.g Manchester uni had a progamme where you could but i missed it because i didn't know about it.

There are quite a few people that take 4 A-Levels, but UCAS points can also be gained from random things such as a grade 7/8 in a musical instrument and AEAs.

The unistats thing is the average that people have when they go, not what their offers were I think.

Unistats confused me too. Pretty much exactly the same reason. The entry requirements were AAB but it said the average was 450-500 points or something.
It may be to do with Scottish students or something? I don't know if their entry requirements are the same in points, but I think they get points for standard grades as well as highers.
I'm just ignoring it tbh.. I have my offer so that doesn't make a huge amount of difference.
