If anyone could help me know what sort of grades I need for my A2 exams that would be helpful

you'll have 330, you will get in

A = 120
B = 100
C = 80
D = 60
E = 40.

AS is half of what it is at A2

Plus the B at AS Level English, which I believe is 50 points, so 330.

An AS is half what an A level is
At A Level:
A = 120 points
B = 100
C = 80 .. and so on.

With your A2's you'll have 280 points if you get those grades
But, if you dont take english on and complete that to a B at AS Level, then you also get 50 points from that.

So, say you get a B in english and get those predicted A2's, you'd have 330 points so you'll be fine

Before you call other people silly you should read the OP's predicted grades and the post you quoted a bit more carefully.

In fact, if the predictions work out accurately, the OP will have 330 points: 280 for the A levels and 50 for the English AS.

Nah your calculation was actually right for A2's, since OP isn't expecting to get ABC, so the person who corrected you was wrong... BBC = 280 points.

But yeah, if you factor in the AS results it's 330

When Unis want say 320 UCAS points, is that just A2's or do you factor in AS as well?
