You are Here: Home >< A-levels

1. for my 1st choice, my offer states 240 points from at least two a-levels. i got an e at english AS and dropped it and am doing three a levels so what grades wud i need?
2. An E at AS-level is worth 20 points, so you need 220 from your A2 subjects. There are probably other combinations, but it is equivalent to CCD.
3. Thankyou
4. Well you would have to check if the AS level can count to the offer, but i'll assume it doesn't.

240 points=CCC minimum.

So you can get CCC minimum and other combinations making 240 points without getting a U in a subject. If you get a U in one subject, you can get AA in the other two and still get your offer.

If your AS counts, then take off 20 points, meaning you need 220 points. I'm sure you can add that up.
5. For A2:

A = 120
B = 100
C = 80
D = 60
E = 40
6. Do key skills count as points?
7. the AS does count cause ice just realised they want 240 points but am making me know they cant all come from my AS levels,

thats why its always good to do well in your AS'S. the points from the subject u drop will come in handy for next year!!
9. Ok, if your AS doesn't, as Sami said, you need CCC minimum.
10. ^^Huh?

Anyway, I thought that if they're asking for points, then the AS and any key skills would count towards the total.
Most places ask forgrades or equivalent points unless they specify you get a specific grade in a specific subject.

Makes me wish I'd done my coursework for IT
11. Most Uni's will not count General Skills A-levels, and a lot don't count Key-Skills. Just a warning ^^ GOOD LUCK!!!

I also need 240, what course you doing?
12. The AS does count aslong as you have at least 2 alevels [12units]
13. Some unis do accept key skills, some don't. I did key skills ICT in year 11 and that counts as 10 points My school made us do AS AVCE ICT in 6th form because it's worth more UCAS points than Key Skills. You need to see if your uni will count key skills by going onto UCAS and checking your entry requirements or failing that give them a ring.
