    Hey,
    I've recently applied to study Business Studies (N100) at LJMU, MMU, LMU, LINCO & SHU.
    I got my first offer today, it's exact wording is;

    Congratulations; University of Lincoln has asked us to tell you that it is offering you a place for Business Studies, N100; starting in September 2011 at point of entry 1.
    The conditions of the offer are:

    This offer is subject to you obtaining
    A minimum of 260 UCAS Tariff points
    from at least 2 GCE A levels or AVCEs


    Basically, does that mean i need to gain 260 from A2s? (at least two)

    Or 260 aslong as it includes 2 A2s?

    Because if its the second one, i could get three A2s at EEE, and then get CCD in my other 3 subjects, giving me 260 including 3A2s?

    any advice? (if you get me!)

    I think it means 260 from everything but you have to have at least 2 A2s.

    It's saying you need 260 UCAS points from at least 2 A levels plus anything else, like an additional A2 or AS to get you 260 points.
