    Hi all,

    I applied to a university (Brunel) and their requirements were 240/260 UCAS points.

    I got a conditional offer from them today, , but they've changed the requirements...

    They now want 320 UCAS points from 3 A levels and an extended project qualification.

    I'm not good at working out UCAS points, :rolleyes:, so what am I looking to be achieving in my subjects and the extended project to meet the 320 ucas point requirments?

    Thanks

    Are EPQs worth the same as ASes?

    In that case, you'll need something along the lines of BBC/C or BCC/A (where the grades here are A-level/EPQ).

    A=120
    B=100
    C=80
    a=60
    b=50
    c=40

    So 320 points could be BBC/c, BCC/a, ACC/c...etc.

    320 points from 3 A-levels is ABB/AAC so that is what you will need.

    no. it says 320 from 3 a levels, PLUS an extended project.
    from the 3 a levels, it was ABB or AAC = 320 points

    Nooo i don't :P

    The UCAS points are from 3 A-levels together with either 1 AS-level or Extended Project Qualification (typical offer BCC, including Grade C in History at A-level, plus a C in either an AS or EPQ).

    Surely in that case you would need BBCc.
