    That doesn't sound right! I thought maximum points from 2 A levels would be 240? You should call the uni concerned..

    its quite clear, you need to have atleast 2 A levels and you can make up the rest of the ucas points up with As levels, so if you had 2 A at A level you could make up the rest of the points with As grades so 2 A's at As would make the 360 ucas points. hope that heled

    It means if you have points from other quailfications e.g Key Skills, an AS Level you dropped, e.c.t then you can add that to your total from you A-Levels.

    It means that you can't get it by having lots of AS levels, you need to have at least two full A-levels as well (making a maximum of 280 points), then can use other methods to get what is left over.

    4 Full A levels might be pushing it, you would need to ask the uni directly, since that can downgrade AAA to BBCC, might clearly aren't anywhere near the same league, it could be however ABBc or AAaa etc

    You can make up the points from any qualifications stated on your UCAS form. But you must have a minimum of 2 A Levels.
