I am really confused about how they work - for instance some people seem to get more than 600.
At the moment I am in my last year of sixth form and have received an A for my Extended Project - worth 60 UCAS points.
I am doing 3 other A levels, and taking the AS and A2 at the end of the second year (don't ask why, school policy!)
I am predicted A*AA - what will this correlate into UCAS points and if so what universities would I be on par with getting into.
I have offers from York, Sussex and Exeter, still waiting on Warwick and was rejected from LSE about 3 weeks ago!

If you're aiming for A*AA, most universities with those entrance standards will use grade offers rather than points. A*AA + A in EPQ is 440 UCAS points.
The people who get more than 600 can generally be divided into two categories; those who are predicted A*A*A*A* and just ridiculously intelligent, and those who are predicted more 'average' grades but are including their year 11 BTEC national certificate in underwater basket-weaving and god knows what else.
