    I go to a German school and our grades aren't the same really as the ones in England so I'm finding it difficult to find out what grades I need in my "Abitur". Does anyone know how to convert UCAS points into a German Abitur grade?
    If anyone does know: I need 230 UCAS points for the course I haven chosen...it would be great if you helped me =)

    What university is this? Foreign qualifications aren't given UCAS points, but the uni might have some sort of conversion scale that it uses. Either way, if they give you an offer it will be specified in terms of your Abitur grades rather than in terms of UCAS points.

    Edinburgh Napier probably^^
    I looked to see whether they said what you had to get but all it said was that Abitur is accepted as a qualification...

    Get in touch with the Uni - they'll give a rough indication of what grades they want.

    I can tell you that 230 ucas points is not much at all. If you're an above average student, you'll probably be accepted.

    230 is like two Bs and a E or something.

    Does it matter if I'm really bad at maths (a D or an E) but good (Bs) at everything else???

    If you take 4 subjects, then it might not matter. If you want to apply to a science, they might ask you for 2 science subjects, so if you do two other sciences, maths won't have to matter.

    Ok so if I do Tourism Management (a BA not a Bsc) it won't matter?

    Tourism does not require maths, I assure you. If you do 4 subjects (not including general studies or critical thinking), then use the other 3 instead
