    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.
