In many of the university prospectuses I have looked at, there has been a UCAS points table at the back.
I've looked at this, but I'm quite confused.
There is one column for AS and one column for A level (not A2)
Does this mean that as I am doing AS philosophy only, the points for that will be from the AS column, and as I'm doing AS and A2 english, media and history, when I have done my A2 exams, the points will come off the A level column and I wouldn't get so many points of the AS column for AS media and so many points off the A level column for A2 media?
Can anyone explain it better for me?

For AS's you get only the points of the AS column. For completed A2s, you get only the points of the A-level column.
So for an A grade at AS you'd get 60 points, whilst for an A grade at A2 you'd get 120 points - not 120 points for the A2 and then a further 60 points for the AS.

If you are continuing a subject onto year 13, put it in the GCE A-level column of the UCAS tariff calculator. If you drop it after AS, put it in the GCE AS column. http://www.ucas.com/higher/tariff/calc/calculator.html
