    This means that you need 300 points from all your A Levels including your A in chinese, but would need to get with your 300 points a CC in Biology and Chemistry. What other A levels are you doing?

    have you already taken your alevels if not then it means minimum grade c in each so you can get
    chinease A 120
    bio B 100
    chem C 80
    or get the the c in bio and b in chem
    it just means that you cant get an A in chinease an A in bio and D in chem (would still give you 300 points) becasue they want a minimum c grade
    i think that is what it means if your still really unsure just phone/email them and ask them.

    Those are minimum grades, not you have to achieve CC exactly - for example, get BC and that will fulfil it.

    I am also doing A level Maths, and I have grade B in AS RS, would this count as points or not?

    AS counts as points.

    [email protected] Though yeh they're asking for a minimum of 3 A Levels for the 300 points to come from.

    Maths - maybe. RS - no. You need grades ABC or BBB or better, which must be biology and chemistry and exactly one other A-level, either maths or Chinese but not both.

    No, these don't count. The offer says "from three GCE A levels". This means exactly three GCE A levels, not a fourth A level or an AS level.
