UCAS Points watch

1. Hi everyone
Can anyone plz tell me how to calculate UCAS points and what is 2.1 degree.
Thnx
2. UCAS points are calculated as below :
A LEVEL:
A = 120
B = 100
C = 80
D = 60
E = 40

AS LEVEL
A = 60
B = 50
C = 40
D = 30
E = 20

I don't know alot about degrees but I think a 2:1 is the 2nd highest degree you can get. Depending on how you do throughout the whole 3/4 years you either get (in order) a 1st, 2:1, 2:2 or a 3rd I think.

its 1st - depending on the uni 70/75% + is required although I think some subjects are lower
2.1 - 60/65% + depending on the uni its normally 60%+
2.2 - 50/ 55%
3rd - normally below 45%
pass - I think normally 35 +

At most unis you are only required to pass inthe first year although if you do better than that all well and good. Your accreditation comes from your second and third year.
