    Hey,

    According to this website 'Merlin Help Students' (sorry I'm not too familiar with it) an A band 2 Standard Grade qualification is the equivalent value as a Intermediate 2 C in terms of UCAS points.

    Is this correct as that doesn't seem that fair.

    S/G A2 = Int. 2 C = 28 points

    Here's the link:

    Thanks!

    SG A2? Do you mean SG 2? Sounds about right to be honest. Int2 = Credit (well a bit higher, but meh) so a pass at credit = 2. a pass at int2 = C

    I don't know. I don't think GCSEs get them any more either?

    I'm pretty sure I saw someone say they got rejected from St Georges Uni because they didn't meet the minimum GCSE ucas points thing.
    Yeah they're used less, but they've still got a value, right?
