    My realistic target is:

    Distinction in Btec Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Sport (this is basically the equivalent of 1 A level)

    Distinction in Btec Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Business (same thing but this time in Business Studies)

    'C' grade at AS Level ICT (which I hope to carry on next year and get a 'C' again)





    Then I am also doing loads of other things and I am not sure if I get UCAS points for them (this is the bit which is really confusing me). Silver award for Duke Of Edinbrugh, Sports Leaders award (think that is a Level 2 award), Work skills and First Aid.

    Look for your qualifications to see what they're worth. It's in alphabetical order.

    Melaine-v - It does not have some of the extra curricular things on it like first aid, DofE etc. So I am not sure if this means you get no UCAS points for them, or if they just do not have them on there.

    If it's not on the list, you don't get UCAS points for it. Why would UCAS publish an incomplete list anyway :confused:

    You will need to check with the unis that interest you whether they will accept the qualifications you are offering for the course you want to do. Do this now, not later, would be my advice.

    The way i see it the 1st ones will be equivalent to 2 A'levels and 1 AS level
    Basically AAC overall

    So in theory u will end up with
    A - 120 UCAS
    A - 120 UCAS
    C - 80 UCAS
    so basically you will end with 320 UCAS points which is quite decent



    Then I am also doing loads of other things and I am not sure if I get UCAS points for them (this is the bit which is really confusing me). Silver award for Duke Of Edinbrugh, Sports Leaders award (think that is a Level 2 award), Work skills and First Aid.
    I know nothing about these ones. I doubt if u'll get UCAS points from them to be honest

    Thanks. I am interested in sport. There are loads of Uni's I am interested in which have around 320 which are:

    Chichester
    Worcester
    Portsmouth
    Plymouth (there are 2 Uni's in Plymouth and I can't remember which was the one I liked)
    Bristol (again, there are 2 Uni's in Bristol & I can't remember which one I liked)
    Essex
    Exeter
    Canterbury
    Winchester
    University of Kent
    Oxford Brookes
    Brighton
    Hertfordshire
    Coventry
    Straffordshire
    Bedfordshire
    Worcester
    Middlesex
    Buckinghamshire


    The main ones are Chichester, Essex, Exeter Bristol (not sure which one), Plymouth (not sure which one), although all the others are still in consideration. I want to try and increase my UCAS points to roughly 390 so that I have a chance of going to Exeter (they require 390 UCAS points or somewhere around there). I was thinking of doing another AS level next year (probably in accounting).

    You'll be referring to UWE (University of the West of England).
    The University of Bristol does not only not accept points, would not as low as 320, but lastly doesn't offer sport at all.

    Are you doing Btec Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Sport for AS or both(AS & A2).
    Also how many have you spent on Btec Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma??
