    Hey, I'm really stuck with my offer. I'm in my fourth year of college and already have 3 C's at A level and am currently taking on another 3.

    My university has offered me:

    'Obtain 320 UCAS points to include a minimum of 2 passes at A Level or equivalent. The points to be obtained by August 2011.'

    As I have 240 already, does this mean that I only need to get 80 UCAS points from my current A Levels or does it mean I need to get 320 this time round and my other A Levels are overlooked? I'm not sure if there's a limit to how many grades they will consider as it doesn't say.

    Thanks for your help!

    Your already gained qualifications most certainly count towards your UCAS points.

    Did you add the 3 C's in your initial application?

    I understand it to mean they will accept your previous A Levels as well as the ones you're doing now. And yes that would mean you only need 80 points, as you already have 2 passes.

    But to be really sure you could e-mail and ask for clarification.

    Yes, they count your current UCAS points. Your 240 you currently hold and plus the ones you will gain this year.
